This real world budget project helps students figure out and understand how important it is to plan a monthly budget and stay within it! This hands on activity will guide students step by step through planning their financial responsibilities.
There are 7 parts to this resource including:
Choosing a career and calculating a monthly budget, putting 10% into savings, choosing a house, choosing a vehicle, buying groceries, adding monthly extras (ie: cell bill, cable or satellite, clothing, entertainment, pets etc), a budget spreadsheet, and a student reflection so students can evaluate their budget.
I hope your students enjoy this project as much as mine did!
