A classroom favorite!
Students have access to cute farm clipart that they spend a budget to "buy" animals and accessories for their farm. Students enter the data in Excel and also use math functions to total the cost.
GOAL: Get as close to your budget as possible without going over!
Lots of fun and lots of student personal choice because they choose their own info for their Excel sheets.
