This Classroom Economy Unit emphasizes real-world situations for your students. Besides the budgeting money focus, the main math focus is adding and subtracting decimals. Teaching your students about the value of money, as well as, how to work within a budget is crucial to their success later in life. Your students will be writing checks, paying rent and bills, and using a "credit card" for purchases in the classroom. This real-life simulation will open their eyes to what it is like to be an adult and have to budget and pay for expenses!
