How to budget money is a skill that many students have never been taught and therefore many adults lack. This package contains 2 parts: Creating a Grocery Budget and a Monthly Budget for all Bills.
These challenges (as I like to call them) require students Grades 7-9 (or higher) to plan for a month's worth of grocery shopping and basic house bills that they will have when they are out on their own.
-It reinforces practical money skills and the budgeting process in a fun and engaging way
- Students will have to consider their needs and wants and keep within their budget
- Students have to go through the very adult process of calculating a basic monthly budget for the expenses they will face when they move away from home
- Through the budgeting process, students also review and practice various math skills such as operations with decimals, finding percentages, estimating and rounding.
- Part 2 especially encourages students to reflect on the power that they have to shape their futures
- Budgeting Challenge assignment sheets for students
- Printable student recording sheets
- 2 Assessment Rubrics (1 for each Part)
- Parent Letter ( for Part 1)
- Reflection assignment sheet
These challenges will open your students' eyes!
