Real World Math - Student Fun Day!
Business and Economics, Australian Curriculum
Are you looking for a fun way to teach your students about about financial literacy and real world math? Have your class run a 'Fun Day' set up similar to mini fete or fair.
Students create and run a simple stall to create a fair/ fete atmosphere for a day.
This project requires only a few lessons of preparation time for the students to set up their business and then one day of running the stalls.
The students learn how to create and set up a business for a day, to budget, team work and profit/ loss. It is a great way for students to transfer skills they have learned in math into real world situations.
This resource includes;
* A teacher information page
* Tips for a successful day
* Ready to print student booklet
The booklet has been set up to help you guide your students through the process. Although, it still allows you flexibility to teach the unit how you wish.
The students always have fun and learn important business skills when completing this project.
This project has been made to align to Australian Curriculum - Business and Economics, but is suitable for any grade 4 to 8 class.
