Groceries and Menu Planning

Students will plan a week’s worth of groceries. They will look at the prices of common grocery items. Next they will calculate the cost for a simple recipe. They will then create a week-long meal plan.

This is what I used with my senior class before they graduated. They gained a lot of knowledge from the various types and questions they asked. It was very easy for students to use Google Classroom to assign it.

I used the Plan a Vacation project as a Life Skills project in ESY. It was a great way for students to practice budgeting, comparison shopping, and time management. I made a virtual fieldtrip using Google Earth for them after they finished. They enjoyed being able to select the attractions and restaurants that they would like to share with the class. Fantastic resource!
