MONEY
Keep a record of the population of each town you drive through or visit within a week . Often you can get this information on the ‘ Welcome ’ sign at the town ’ s entrance , otherwise , Wikipedia is a good source of information . Once you have your town populations recorded , use the numbers to study place value and addition and subtraction . For the older children , you can also include some division .
Estimate how much money you think the family will spend over the coming week . Then , during the week , keep track of all the money spent . Write down the items purchased and keep a running total . At the end of the week , have a look back at your estimation and see how close you were . Maybe you can then work with the family to set a budget for the following week .

When you have your list of words , ask an adult to check your spellings and then use your words to create a word search ( or word find ) for someone in your family to solve . Older children could use the list words to create a crossword .
