MacKinnon Seventh Graders Shop Around the World...
 
Seventh grade students learned about world markets, price comparisons and currency conversions in an interesting online web quest, World Shopping Spree.  Students and teachers alike were often surprised by the tremendous cost diffences on the same items in various parts of the world.  After making their online price comparisons, students displayed their results in PowerPoint slideshows that they shared with their classmates.  The project proved to be a great way to tackle the math skills involved and learn some world economics at the same time.
