This is a brand new project added to my store!! (March 2017)
This is a unique credit card project designed for your students to understand how a credit card works better!! Students will start with a previous balance history and will track 2 months worth of credits or debits as well as calculate a minimum payment to pay off their credit card.
This file includes steps the students need to follow to complete the project, blank monthly calendars for students to use as an organizer, vocabulary page for students to define key words, examples of charges and debits your students could get, and a project rubric for easy grading.
This can easily be used for a full week in your classroom. You will need to add extra charges and debits, teach your students how to calculate minimum payments, and how to use APR to calculate what is owed on a credit card.
BONUS: Project also has some enrichment activities such as students needing to understand good/bad habits when using a credit card and also has student research briefly some laws regarding consumer credit.
