Why Lesson Planet?
Planning a party is big fun for kids. It's also an opportunity for an educational learning experience. Here, youg learners assess the costs associated with a party they want to have. After a brainstorm session that produces a list of all of the things they will need, kids try to figure out ways to attach a cost to the items. They then work together to add them all up. This is a great activity for any second or third grade class.
