|Plan a Feast | Thanksgiving | Project | Math Project | Add and Subtract | Decimals | Without Decimals |Computation | Collaboration | Small Group |

Students will work in small groups and collaborate to plan a Thanksgiving feast for 10. They must stay within a budget of $65.00 and choose convenient methods when possible. They come to realize that convenience costs more. They will make a meal plan from a two page price list that does use decimals or a two page price list that does not use decimals. Students will keep a running balance as they make menu choices and decide on festive table decor. Students will journal about their experience and use a rubric to score their results.

I have included both a pdf format and a Microsoft Office Word format. The word document will allow you to edit the project in case you want to increase the budget for a homework assignment. The $65.00 budget is fairly tight and will require some team work and decision making.

See the preview for more details.
