This is an authentic learning task. Involving money and keeping to a budget.
The students will be planning a dinner out for their family. They are given certain parameters to follow. (You can choose from $50 or $75 or make your own amount.)
The students will need take-out menus to complete the task.
You can give the problem to the students as an open ended problem or you can include the graphic organizer to help the students organize their work. (There are 2 different organizers)
If you have a student with a large family, feel free to increase the budget.
Don’t forget to give the students a coupon.
