Mrs. Samson's 4th grade class and Mrs. Harrison's 5th grade class had a math buddy activity to plan a mock holiday party for 35 of their closest friends. They developed a party menu with a $100 play money budget and used local store ads to shop. Through this activity, they practiced adding and subtracting decimals, estimation skills and used a calculator to check their work.
