4 Period 2 40 minutes FAMILY EXPENSES (continued) Everyone will assume that the monthly income of their family is \$3, (This way no one will be asked to reveal their actual family income.) Demonstrate a few examples of how to calculate percentages. Each student will complete the last column, by calculating the percentages for each item, and deducting every cost from the monthly income. e.g. Food 15% \$ Amount Balance \$2, N.B. Remind the class that the amount in the last column should keep decreasing! The teacher will then lead a discussion. Sample questions that the teacher may ask to get the discussion started: 1. What would their parents do with any money that was left? 2. What should the family do if there is not enough money? 3. Why do you think that is important? 4. How would making a plan help to make sure you had enough money to cover the expenses? 5. Was any money put aside for a rainy day? Period 3 40 minutes SALES TAXES Start a discussion about why governments charge sales tax. What does the government do with the money? Why does the amount of sales tax differ from one province to another? Hand out the sales tax worksheet and read together the top section: HOW TO CALCULATE SALES TAX. Allow the rest of the period to complete it. Period 4 40 minutes PLANNING AND BUDGETING Before the class begins, obtain a copy of the DVD Econ and Me from CFEE. Before watching the DVD, tell the class they will write a paragraph recalling the story. Write the following questions on the board and tell the class that these questions should be answered in their paragraph on recalling the story. 1. What were the problems in this video? 2. How were these problems overcome? 3. How did having a plan help the children achieve their goals? 4. How and why did they have to change their plans? 5. Building a clubhouse could be expensive. Do you think having a plan would save money? View the DVD. The paragraphs need to be finished for homework and handed in next period. Possible Evaluations 1. Evaluate the understanding of Idioms. 2. Mark the calculations of percentages. 3. Assess the Family Budget worksheets. 4. Evaluate class participation. 5. Mark the sales tax worksheets. 6. Evaluate the paragraphs recalling the video.

5 Follow-Up Activities 1. Do a read-aloud of a story related to money issues. 2. Make a class budget for a party or excursion. 3. Ask the students to make a personal budget. 4. Students can write a story about a time they made a plan and it was successful. 5. Read another book related to this unit. e.g. Sam and the Lucky Money by Karen Chinn Sam is given the traditional gift of lucky money to spend in any way he chooses! He s unhappy when he realizes he doesn t have enough money to purchase the things he wants. 6. Make posters of the idioms. Modifications or Suggestions for Different Learners 1. All students can be engaged in the group activities. 2. Different learners may orally recall the content of the DVD or draw a picture about what happened. 3. Students may be paired up with a partner to work on their budgets on the computer. Handouts /Resources 1. List of Money Idioms 2. Family Monthly Budget Chart 3. DVD Econ and Me Canadian Foundation for Economic Education 4. Sales tax worksheet Ontario Building Futures Teaching Unit Page 4

6 MONEY IDIOMS What do they mean? Money doesn t grow on trees. Don t pour your money down the drain. He spends money like it is going out of style. It costs an arm and a leg. Tighten your belt. Keep you head above water. Laugh all the way to the bank. Live beyond one s means. A fool and his money are soon departed. He has a nest egg. Money burns a hole in your pocket.

7 Name FAMILY MONTHLY BUDGET EXPENSES PERCENTAGE MONTHLY INCOME (rent, food, clothes, etc.) % of income spent on this item \$3, Ontario Building Futures Teaching Unit Page 6

8 Name Example of HOW TO CALCULATE SALES TAX We change 4% to a decimal and multiply it by the total. 4% =.04.04(75) = We can round to Remember that we are talking about money so the 3.38 is really three dollars and thirty- eight cents. 4% of 75 = \$3.38 Next, = \$78.38 Our total would be \$78.38 Sometimes, you will have a fractional sales tax. What would we do if the sales tax was 4.5%? Well, we can work on this problem in the same way. Let s look at an example. Example: The total bill for shopping was \$ If the sales tax is 4.5%, what is the total bill? First, we figure out the amount of the sales tax. 4.5% of 85 Next, we convert 4.5% to a decimal. 4.5% =.045 Our key word of tells us to multiply..045(85) = = \$3.83 Now we add the sales tax to the total = = \$88.83? Ontario Building Futures Teaching Unit Page 7

9 Name SALES TAX AND PERCENTS ASSIGNMENT WORKSHEET Directions: Use the information to figure out the total including sales tax. 1. Total: \$55.00 Sales tax: 13% 2. Total: \$75.00 Sales tax: 5.5% 3. Total: \$65.00 Sales tax: 10% 4. Total: \$45.00 Sales tax: 15% 5. Total: \$ Sales tax: 13% 6. Total: \$ Sales tax: 4.5% 7. Total: \$ Sales tax: 12.5% 8. Total: \$ Sales tax: 13% 9. Total: \$ Sales tax: 11% 10. Total: \$230.0 Sales tax: 6.5% Ontario Building Futures Teaching Unit Page 8
