Makeover Madness Week #1
This is one of my most popular products, and it desperately needed a makeover. This challenge was just the motivation I needed to get my Budget Unit updated.
This is a 5 part budget unit that I used with both middle school and high school students. I currently use it in my economics class when studying budgeting and personal finance. This project can take as little or as long as you like. Students research the costs of different living expenses and careers and use these costs to complete budgeting worksheets. There is also a writing component at the end to evaluate their own learning. The entire project can take several weeks and may require computer time. This project includes college and career research. There are directions, an 8-page budget document, a letter to parents, and a grade sheet.
The Teacher Team did a review of this budget in February. Be sure to check it out.
