Thanksgiving Project

In this project, students will be paired with a partner and together they will use a local grocery store advertisement to shop for food items to be served at their family Thanksgiving dinner.  They will be given a budget of how much money can be spent at the store for their dinner.  They will have to add up the total cost of the meal and then determine the amount of change that will be received.  The students will be required to include at least one item from each food group.  They will then create a Google presentation to present to the class.  Their presentation must include the Food Pyramid diagram, photos of the food items and a breakdown of their budget and how much they spent.
