Our sixth graders on the red team participated in a shopping challenge prior to the vacation. Students were given a budget of $20.00. Their task was to use grocery store flyers from two different stores to purchase as many items as they could. The items bought had to be non-perishable food items that could be donated to the food pantry. Then, with the items on their list, they needed to determine how many servings/ portions they would have to feed families. Students learned that one grocery store had better deals than the other- but we won’t say which one!
