Part of Lesson Plan: Generational Spending & Hospitality
Activity Overview / Details
See the photo example of the Generational Expenditure Pie Chart Poster & distribute Pie chart planning sheet.
Students are to use the planning chart as they gather information from their family as homework. It is important to STRESS repeatedly that we are NOT asking for private finance dollar amounts. Only general estimate percentages.
Once the information is gathered, the students develop a 11X17 poster that includes all three charts, typed labels for each, and graphics showing a visual representation of what the money is spent on.
The poster is reviewed by the student and the student completes a one page summary of their findings which answer the questions:
What similarities and differences have you see in how money in your family is spent?
What are the differences in the amount of money spend on entertainment & vacation when compared together.?
How do you match or not match other kids your age when comparing to the research?
