Thanksgiving Home Economics

The day before Thanksgiving Mrs. Menzel's 5th grade Math class was challenged to plan and calculate the cost of a Thanksgiving meal for 12. They were given a $100.00 voucher, ads and coupons and were told how much food they would need. They had to calculate how much 2 pounds of potatoes would cost and estimate to the nearest dollar. They had 50 minutes to calculate the cost of an entire meal. The average cost for a family of 12 was $59 dollars. What savvy shoppers! One student said, "That was so much fun. Can we do it for the Christmas meal too?"
