Estimation Shopping Spree
GET READY TO BECOME A COST EFFECTIVE SHOPPER!
To research original prices for items at a supermarket and make an estimate of the prices and then total both prices and compare.
1. On a piece of loose leaf paper, make a chart with 3 columns:
- 1st column title ITEM
- 2nd column title ORIGINAL PRICE
- 3rd column title, ESTIMATED PRICE
- Bottom line title, TOTAL
2. Look at the weekly ads online at FoodLand, Times, and Safeway or from newspaper inserts to find the following Shopping List Items.
Shopping List Items:
- 3 produce items (fruit or vegetable)
- 3 meat items (beef, chicken, fish, etc.)
- 3 drinkable items (water, juice, etc.)
- 3 frozen items
3. List each item, original price and estimated price in the chart that you created. Note: you may only use 4 prices that end in .99.
4. Add the ORIGINAL PRICE and ESTIMATED PRICE columns and write it at the bottom of the column. You will have a total of 12 items and prices.
Each item, original and estimated price - 1 pt.
Both original and estimated totals - 1 pt.
