Product Description
This is a real-life application project for students during the holiday season. Students will search holiday ads to purchase presents for five friends and family members. While shopping, they will have to stay within a budget, apply the best discount for their purchase, and calculate the sales tax. My students LOVE this activity as it allows them to connect their math skills to a real-life situation.

Please note that there are no holiday ads included in the purchase of this product. Prior to completing this activity, you will need to print out shopping ads or have students bring in some from home. I generally do an Internet search for “Black Friday Ads” and find plenty of options. I usually have my students share the ads with a partner or with a group so that I do not have to print off as many. I feel that using ads from actual stores increases the levels of engagement. The kids get really excited about shopping!
