Let your students apply their knowledge of decimals (add, multiply). This is a very REAL life math project that uses a myriad of measurements.
Great for a sub!
Great for centers!
Use as an assessment!
-mission page where kids can list their guests and plan the menu
-planning page where kids calculate the costs
-shopping page which lists items and costs.
To save paper (and if your copy machine will
accommodate), print each page half page and create a booklet style assignment.
Items that are sold by the pound, box, dozen must be sold in those amounts. For instance, you cannot buy 1/2 of a dozen or 1/2 of a box of jello.
Choose Your Challenge:
Plan a meal for less than 100.00.
Calculate the cost for each meal.
Create a poster with the calculations.
Add for last minute guests.
Write about your mathematical thinking.
