Product Description
In this group activity, students will analyze a collection of teacher-provided receipts and create a profile of the owner of the receipts. Receipts are a primary source as they represent a relic from a particular time and place. Students will act like detectives and piece together a profile of a person using details such as store location, items purchased, method of payment, and date. This PDF contains questions to help guide students as well as a page where students write down their inferences.

Please note: examples of receipts are not provided. It is up to the teacher to collect receipts from their own lives, or ask family and friends for receipts. The wackier the receipt, the better!!
