Family Budget

This is a great outline for creating a spreadsheet based on using information found online. Learners can search the web and find current information about the costs for food, rent, childcare, medical expenses, car payments, utilities, etc. They can find out the average annual income for a specific occupation based on where they are living. Then they can put all of this information together in a spreadsheet and learn how to use the calculating formulas available to compare income and expenses. Take a look and adapt this lesson to meet the needs of you class.
