In this project, students "spend" $2,500 to design a student lounge. Students use online websites to "purchase" furniture and décor for the student lounge to meet the requirements. Students record their "purchases" on an order form, calculating the total bill and sales tax. Then, students construct a creative way to display their newly designed student lounge and work. The Shopping Spree Project can be used before the unit as a pre-assessment, during the unit as a formative assessment, or after the unit as a post-assessment.
