PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This activity teaches students about profit. It is designed to be done in small groups of 3-5, and I use it as a math station. The activity is simple, the students are running a lemonade stand that sells two types of lemonade. They use a spinner to determine their daily sale. (Mine use a paperclip on the provided spinner) Students are then introduced to the idea of COST to make the lemonade and PROFIT. My students complete this activity in about 30 minutes. (the idea of percentage of profit is an extension problem) It is hands on, interesting to them, encourages real world understanding, and gets the math topic across really well. This activity addresses Common Core Grade 8 math standards, and the NCTM for Middle Grades. I have done this activity with all levels of middle school students, including ell, sped, and honors. it is very adaptable for differentiation.
