Want a fun and engaging way to wrap up a unit on rounding? Try this challenging project!
This product includes directions, rubrics, a list of potential salaries, and checklists for your students. Check out my store for the PowerPoint you can use to introduce the project to your students!
-This project asks students to choose their dream job and decide between 2 dream salaries (can be assigned or chosen randomly)
-Students are required to round each salary option to several different places and decide which salary they would rather have
-Students will then create a poster with their potential salaries, what they round to, a comparison of both salaries, and written reasoning for why they chose one over the other
-The final piece of this project is a "job interview" where students present their posters for the interviewer (you, administration, a classroom volunteer...anybody!) during the interview they will need to explain their rounding strategy, how they compared both salaries, why they chose their final salary, and why they deserve that salary. You can have students dress in professional attire for the interview if you wish!
