Overdue Fines

Students work in cooperative groups to solve a real-world problem: comparing overdue fines at different libraries. They also examine the various solutions presented and compare the numbers used to determine the reasonableness of the results. Finally, students create a poster showing the number of days the book was overdue and a graph showing the amount of the overdue fine at each of the libraries on the chart.

I subscribed to Lesson Planet after I started teaching science at my district's alternative school. Science isn't my specialty so it has been a real life saver! I am able to find lots resources to enrich my lessons! It's a tremendous time saver too! Why reinvent the wheel?
