Product Description
Students are given a budget and asked to spend a specified amount of their budget on a few different cateories such as clothing, food, entertainment, etc. The students will then be provided with various store ads containing these items from the specified categories and begin "purchasing" thier goods. Ads can be obtained by visiting your local department stores or found in newspapers. Students can also be asked to supply ads if given ample time to collect.

Students will continuously check their calculations to ensure that they are not going over budget for each category. They can also learn to calculate tax if you would like to add that to the worksheet. Students can work individually or in groups. Great activity to use during the Christmas season!
