This activity focuses on the importance of using mathematics to find deals when grocery shopping.  Students will analyze data from local grocery store advertisements and determine the best deals by using multiple strategies.  This task will also require students to find and compare unit rates, which connects the fourth grade concepts of solving problems involving money and using place value understanding to do arithmetic to the sixth grade standard of determining a unit rate.  Once students find which store offers the best deal, they will create a public service announcement teaching others how to find the best deals when grocery shopping. This public service announcement is an opportunity to use precise mathematical language and construct viable arguments.  This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
