Use this item as a way to practice budgeting a thanksgiving meal. The students are able to create their own list of people and food items they will serve at their Thanksgiving dinner. They will have to stay with in a $75 budget and then find the total of the entire dinner. The second page of this lesson is six multi-step word problems that relate to the Thanksgiving Dinner Menu. My students loved to walk around the room and “invite” people to their dinner and ask what they wanted. I let them use a calculator to add the totals…it’s great calculator practice!
Hope you enjoy!
