Product Description
Project based learning for 6th grade math skills is awesome! Teach your students math skills and financial literacy through this project-based learning activity. Your students will practice decimal operations (money), work with percentages, and create scatter plots. Challenge activities allow for it to be used in 6th grade as well. It includes a teacher guide walking you through each step.

Your students will get their first peek at the process of creating a budget! Kids love having choices, and this project gives them the choices they want! Throughout this project, they get to choose their career, car, and house. Their choices may be limited depending on the salary they get with their career. During this structured PBL, kids will practice percentages and decimal operations (multiplication, division, addition, and subtraction), along with using critical thinking skills.

This is the 6th grade version of my BEST SELLING Project-Based Learning activity! Teach your students real life math skills using this high-interest PBL, while applying the Common Core (Or Other State) Standards they've learned! Your students will begin thinking about what career path they want to take, and will look at real life data on average salary, housing, food, and transportation costs. Supplementary articles on personal finance and functional text may be brought into this lesson to connect with Reading standards.

All of my PBLs include e-mail support. Check the feedback below to see what it's all about!
