Excel Lesson Plan
Puppy Pet Adoption Budget

Assignment: Students have a budget of $200.00 to adopt a new puppy and a variety of related items for the puppy. Puppies need a place to sleep, bowls for food, toys, a collar and leash, and other items. Students choose all the items they think they need to get started taking care of the new puppy, but they must keep costs under $200.00.

Students create a budget using a spreadsheet showing how much they have to spend (allowance), and how much each item costs (expenses). Students use the autosum formula to calculate the total costs. Students use a simple formula (allowance - total expenses = money left over) to subtract total adoption expenses from the $200.00 allowance to show how much money is left over (money left over).
