The seven day unit allows students the opportunity to use math, reading, writing and problem solving skills to complete a real world project. Students will be given a career and a budget to buy groceries, pay for gas, buy a car, find a place to rent, and more. Students will also find out that life throws them speed bumps and will have to use money from their budget to pay for these unforeseen expenses. There are writing prompts to get students thinking about how these skills will apply to them as adults. This project will help students connect things they are learning in school to skills they will need as adults.
