I use this activity in my Economics classes to show students how much they will pay in taxes in their future jobs. Business, Math and personal finance classes could use this activity in their classes. The lesson is designed to have students choose to possible professions, research the salary of those jobs and determine net pay. Teach students about federal and state income taxes and help students learn about yearly and monthly net and gross pay. Students are shocked to see how much the government will take in taxes. Activity comes with follow up questions. Purchase the bundled budget unit which includes this unit with several others by same seller for a discounted price.
