A great rich and open-ended task for students to attempt who are learning about multiplication of 1 number by 2 numbers.
They need to plan a plan a party by inviting a certain number of guests and then making sure they have enough food, utensils, games, etc. for all their guests. The shopping list shows various items and how many people each item caters for.
An extension to their exercise is the costing sheet where they then look up how much each individual item costs and they have to work out their total budget.
My students absolutely LOVED this and had a ball creating their own individual parties.
I have attached the Word Doc files so you can edit the planner to suit your class' needs and even add in more products if you wish!
