This is a great end of the year activity. Students use newspaper ads, or the internet to spend exactly $1,000,000! Students must follow requirements on how to spend their money to get started with the project. Some examples include: a house, cars, electrical items, clothing, and college savings. Students are able to keep a running total of their purchases by using this project outline. Students may also use pictures and prices from the internet or newspaper to prove their purchases by pasting their findings in construction paper.
This is a great end of the year project. All students need is: Project Sheet, construction paper, scissors, glue, access to newspapers or internet, travel brochures, car advertisement magazines, and real estate brochures. (Calculators could also be used to check work)
