Budgeting Project

by Rachel Dennis

This was a semester-long project in which students tracked all of their interactions with money for one month using a checkbook register and then used that data to create a personal budget. After they created the budget, they "tested it" for 2 weeks to see if it was realistic for their lifestyle. They presented their budgets, findings and reflections at our school's roundtable presentations to other students, teachers, parents, and members of their community.
