Discussion for Dream Bedroom
Robert LaRocque (Teacher (K-12))
This sounds like a great lesson to reinforce spreadsheet and productivity software, as well as touch on the concept and importance of budgets. It also gives students the opportunity to create their dream room where you get to gain a bit of insight from the students.
I am not sure of your capability, but it may be helpful for you to share your computer screen and take students through the process of a demo spreadsheet, so they can follow along on their individual computers as you guide them through on the main screen.
Great Lesson Plan.
Eric March (Teacher (K-12))
This looks like a lot of fun for the students, and very appropriate for the age group. I taught middle school for three years, and they are definitely becoming aware of how much things cost. Also, Excel is such an interesting program to work with, and students will probably be amazed at how much it can do when the proper formulas are used.
