Product Description
This assignment was inspired by the $23 Welfare Challenge.
2-4 class periods including research ( can be stretched to include mini-presentations)
PART A: Students are hypothetically given $23 to plan a healthy, well-balanced meal for FOUR people.
PART B: Students are hypothetically given $23 to feed themselves (only) for 1 week.
Both parts require research using online grocery flyers and newspaper flyers. Students include images, cost per item, store of purchase, and identify which food groups each purchase falls into.
Both Part A and Part B also include prompted written reflections, and part B includes a reflection that has students identify challenges faced, strategies for stretching their budget, and the quality of their week of meals compared to their balanced meal in Part
A. ** The last piece is research to identify local support within the community.
Document is editable so you can change the list of grocery stores.
This is great for budgeting, health and nutrition, learning to stretch staple foods and utilize leftovers, and allowing students to become aware of the cost of food (especially for families without extra resources). I have them do informal presentations to the class after to share what they learned and what types of meals they managed to plan within budget.
