As the last project, and a celebration for the end of this math unit, we had a Mexican Fiesta. The boys helped to determine the quantity of food needed and the costs involved. Even though it was a bit hard to determine at times, they got an estimate of the costs.
Using the same prices from the menu we used in the activity, Combination Plates, the boys took orders from the members of our family and wrote each person up their own bills. I took all kinds of pictures, but my video card gave out and they were all lost, so you are going to have to just imagine the boys taking orders and making all those combination plates. : )
We also compared the costs of the actual meal to the menu's and also compared the prices of the menu we used to actual menus from a nearby Mexican restaurant.
