This activity can be used to show students how to plan a Thanksgiving Dinner. Included are: graphic organizers, food advertisement prices, directions, challenges, and tips for planning dinner with obvious connections to math. Two "Extreme Challenges" are included--when unexpected visitors plan to attend and when a sudden budget crisis occurs. This activity can be made as challenging as the teacher desires as the "Extreme Challenges" are added to the end of the activity or could easily be left out. I think your students will love the challenge of planning their own family's Thanksgiving Dinner!
