This project teaches students how to assess and create a budget for a theoretical person's expenditures.
The setup document breaks down the materials that will be needed and some details of the 7 different theoretical people. I used an envelope for each theoretical person, printed the bill amounts specified in the setup document, and several receipts that I collected from myself and colleagues.
The My Budget powerpoint leads students through the process of analyzing their theoretical person's spending habits. I usually link this to google classroom and students edit the powerpoint to create their final project.
