Using real pictures and prices of decorations, food, recipes, and tableware, students can create shopping lists and budgets for a class Thanksgiving or fall or autumn dinner. Open-ended, authentic learning activity! Great for a group math center. Full color but prints nicely in grey-scale.
How can I use this product?
You can lead a whole class discussion using the included catalog and you can even buy the supplies. (I used Party City and Safeway for the product and price information). Or, you can set up a Thanksgiving math center for groups, partners, and individuals to figure out the shopping list and budget. I provided different levels, so your beginner groups can work on the shopping list and the other groups can work on the budget. There are also extension ideas and your early finishers can create their own budget for a Thanksgiving dinner party at home.
