Does Money Motivate You?


I am hoping it motivates my 6th graders!

It's Saturday! Time for Sparking Motivation with Joanne over at Head Over Heels for Teaching.

We still have 17 days of school, but we are all running on fumes.

Next week we start a 9 day project I hope will keep my kiddos motivated. We are giving them $1,000,000 to spend! It's not a free for all, but even sixth graders don't truly understand how much one million dollars is.

I did this project last year, but being my first year in middle school, and my first project, it wasn't successful. So, I revamped it and organized it so I big hopes for the end product this time. I won't be surprised if I revamp it again after this week though.

Click to get it for FREE. And stayed tuned, I will be posting when we finish to let you know how it turned out.

Be sure to check out this link party as well. It's over at All Things Upper Elementary.

  2. I love activities for end of the year fun. Best way to keep students on track! This one looks awesome.. a million dollars doesn't go as far as you'd expect!
