This is a carefully crafted webquest with hyperlinks to safe sites for your students to explore. Throughout this web quest your students will be asked to select a house, a car, a career, and much more. They will find out just how much these things will cost and if they can pay their bills! It was definitely an eye opener for a lot of my Algebra students.
We did this project in correlation with our school's summer reading book: Nickel and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich.
