DETAILED DESCRIPTION:

The actual download you will receive is a Zip file. From there you will have access to all 30 student pages via a PDF or the 23 editable files in a PowerPoint file.

The student pages include -

  • Creating a supply list
  • Planning the budget
  • Making a guest list
  • Getting needed supplies, estimates, and costs
  • Researching costs of items
  • Birthday party questions
  • Creating a birthday party schedule

You will want to look through the entire resource before printing any pages. Based on the math needs of your students, you can choose to print out specific pages for an entire class or pages specific to individual needs. Or you can open the editable file and make the sheets work exactly the way YOU want them to!

Due to the various numbers in this download, an answer key and rubric are NOT included. This is a very open-ended resource.

This download is great as a math project-based learning activity at any point during the school year. But, if you are looking for an engaging activity to do before a break or after state testing, then this download would be perfect!

I recommend meeting with students as they work through the worksheets. This way you can grade on the go, teach additional strategies, give tips, extend the learning for those who need it, reteach, and more.

Bring financial literacy and real life math to life for your second, third, fourth, and fifth graders with this great download. I'm sure your students will love it!
