Our Price List with +/- lesson plan provides a basic introduction to spending money. During this lesson, students are asked to work through word problems in which they are given the cost of an item and then must determine if the amount of money they have will be enough to purchase the item. Students are also asked to make a list of the things they would buy if they had $100, making sure not to exceed their budget; this gives them a fun and creative way to practice adding product costs together and use the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to analyze whether they are able to purchase a product or service based on a specific amount of money.
