This is an activity that will allow students to experience shopping on Thanksgiving. They will be able to use their knowledge and skills on calculating the sale price and percent of decrease.
Teacher posts the four stores on different parts of the classroom wall or any good place in the school like the gym or the hallway as long as it doesn’t disturb others. You can use an adhesive tape to post them. The posted stores are the location of the stores where students will go shopping. Students will go from one store to another. Students have a shopping card to use in purchasing items. There is a movement here; not the typical paper and pen activity done on a chair. A nice activity before the Thanksgiving Break.
