I learned that the lessons/assignments you think are easy...usually turn out to be really challenging. I found this lesson online that I thought it would be entertaining as well as motivating to my students. I really found that my students were puzzled, unsure about money, how much things cost and had no clue what to do with a million dollars. Many of them didn't know where to start or how much to give or keep. Some of them really had to think.
The students had 1 million dollars and they had to write how they would save,spend, give, or invest it. I challenged myself to do the same. I allowed the students to write their answers on the board which many of them felt proud showcasing.
The assignment turned out to be a great teaching tool for me as well as it allowed me to create a second lesson where I was able to discuss cost for many of the popular items such as college tuition and purchasing homes.
So in your spare time (yeah right spare time) I challenge you to try it.
