This project gives the background on how the cost of the 12 Days of Christmas is calculated. Students need to fill in a chart that names the differences in prices from last year to this year. They also can shop for someone off the list. They are given a budget of $5,000. They need to determine the cost and also the "change" they'd get back. The source of the article is listed. It is a website. The website can be used to access videos. This project can be done independently at school or home, or as a group project at school.
Great for sub plans!
