The ultimate goal of common core standards is to prepare students for the work force. "Jobs, Life, and Budgeting" is a chance to teach kids how the real world works.
Students will have a chance to learn that making money does not always mean keeping money. With taxes, unforeseen circumstances, housing, and bills, the packet has it all.
This short math unit includes:
- jobs for kids to choose from
- a mock job application
- simple guide to paying taxes, including different brackets.
- a chance to purchase house, vehicle, groceries, and pay bills.
- a list to choose fun items to fill up an empty new house
The form is simple and self explanatory. Students make calculations as they go and learn what life can do to seemingly steady income!
Step by step, this is an easy packet to supplement your economics lessons in math or social studies. Updated periodically, so please send in suggestions!
