Objective: Students will solve problems using their knowledge on sales tax.
Activity Instructions: Assign students to groups (2-6 group members). Hand out a map to each group and assign them a State (Or you can let groups decide on a state, your choice). Using their knowledge on sales tax, students will calculate the tax and total for each item provided. Each group will have the same items, just a different sales tax. Students must show their work in the boxes (no calculator) to receive full credit. I have provided all state sales taxes and the tax and total for each item, this way you can check your student’s answers. When they are finished with the worksheet, they can start their poster. There is a poster checklist on the back page, so students don’t miss anything.
What’s included: Calculations worksheet (front and back). A big map, and 2 maps on one page (you can choose which you want to make copies of). All answers for each state.
