"It’s finally here—summer vacation! You have been saving all year and have $1,800.00 to plan a trip."
So begins this fun activity in budgeting money for students! Students are given a budget amount, a price list with choices, and a Budget Worksheet to plan a trip. Students must choose a destination, a rental car, a hotel, food, etc. The trip is successful if students are able to make it back with at least $.01. A holistic rubric is included as well. Please check out the preview and thumbnails! This also makes a great end of the year math activity!
Tip: With younger students, you can allow them the use of calculators if you choose.
