I use this with my special education high school students. They look through newspaper ads and pick out one grocery item, one clothing item, one household item, and one health care item. For each item they write down the name of the item, the store they found it at and how much it costs. They also find the total cost of all four items.
*This is an updated version of the Newspaper Ads assignment I have already posted. I added "wh" questions and narrowed it down to 2 pages instead of 3. This version is easier for students to use with just a front and back page.
