This is a third grade math lesson that surrounds budgeting and using money. The lesson will be after students are introduced to the basics of money in the real world. Students will be asked to look at the MyMap created of field trips that would be fun to take if we (as a class) had a million dollars. Students will pair up, pick one location, and are given a budget that they must follow when planning a field trip to that destination. Students will have to consider plane tickets, where we will stay, tickets to the location, food, transportation, exc. This requires at least one device per group so they can research their destination and the cost of the list above.
The goal should be used to let student investigate where the destinations are located as well information that can also be found on the website. Students should have time to finish this project, and they will present their findings to the class.
