The class were split into five groups and told that have a budget to plan a birthday party. Students asked if it could be a different type of party so obviously the answer was yes.
Group A’s budget is $500,
Group B’S budget is $1000,
Group C’s budget is $2500,
Group D’s budget is $5000, and
Group E’s budget is $10 000.
Each group will need to how many people can be at the party, itemise each expense and calculate the amount left in their budget once they’re finished. Before they group could start, they brainstormed ideas for their party.
Students will need to search the net for actual services and costs. and that they should shop around for the best price.
The groups will report back on Wednesday to the class and reveal their party plan.
The way they present this is up to the individual groups. (Students may choose to present their information on cardboard, SWAY, PowerPoint. Google Docs.)
Once all groups have presented, then the strategies each group used to calculate their budgets and how effective their methods were will be discussed..
Cant wait till Wednesday to see how well each group has been able to manage their money and also give their reasons their choices.
