All in the Family

Students develop budgets for various activities and compare and contrast the most economic purchases. In small groups they compute a family budget given a certain amount of money, compose menus for a five day period, develop a grocery list to buy supplies for the meals, participate in a simulated grocery shopping trip to list the prices for their items, and write thank you letters to the store managers.
