Budgeting is much more fun when you're planning a vacation! Small groups work together to outline a five-day menu for four people with a $200 budget. They choose a destination, pick activities, and plan food around each day's itinerary. Online research is encouraged, and there are several links they can start from. Groups present the menu and vacation plan in a PowerPoint display and organize all information in a vacation plan binder which includes an Excel budget spreadsheet. There is a detailed assignment handout with rubric you can print, however it doesn't include a bibliography requirement. Consider showing scholars how to create an automated budget in Excel.
