Great activity to do before Christmas or other gift giving holidays!
Holiday shopping activity allows students to shop with a budgeted amount of money for presents. Provide students with the worksheet, along with catalogs to shop from (or online shopping if preferred).
Students have to keep track of the person, store, gift, and price of the item. The last column asks students to round price to the nearest dollar. This allows them to estimate their current amount spent while shopping to not go over budget. Finally, they need to calculate the actual total cost.
Can easily be modified with adding sales tax, coupons, discounts, etc.
There are three word problems provide on the second page for anyone who finishes. Again, can be easily done without or modified.
