I created this engaging powerpoint to go along with a social studies unit on spending and saving for a second grade classroom. However, it's great for other grades too! At the end of the powerpoint, the students had to complete a fun activity to demonstrate their understanding.
Here's how I implemented the activity in my class:
1. I gave students $20 in play money (to make it a little more hands-on).
2. Students had to decide how to spend that $20.
3. Students then selected their choices by circling their responses on a visual worksheet.
I assessed students on their ability to spend their money on wisely.
*The worksheet for this assessment activity is available in this pack!
