Are you looking for a fun real-world application of math?
This item provides students with a menu, a $40.00 budget, and a challenge to feed their entire family. A list of special considerations is included to promote critical thinking.
Students respond to important questions addressing the challenges of working within a limited budget, necessary compromises, shopping and cooking versus eating out, application of a budget to other life areas, and how current decisions impact the future. Students are also invited to illustrate a meal of their choice with NO budgetary worries.
The student discussion prompted by this activity creates a collective "aha." Students learn lessons that will last a lifetime.
