Product Description
Have your class throw a dinner party! This product is a fun and engaging activity to help students learn how to estimate sums in an applicable, real world scenerio. Students will work in partners or groups and use the food menu to select items to serve at their dinner party and then estimate the costs for their 12 person dinner party. There is room on the worksheet for students to show their work, which allows students to demonstrate their understanding of estimating. Teachers can decide whether their students should estimate to the nearest dollar or to the tenths place, and there is a place in the directions for students to circle which place they are estimating to. As an extension activity, students can find the actual price of their dinner party and then find the difference between the estimated and exact price.
