 IMG_0316IMG_0371

DO NOT open Skyward while we are in the lab. You will need to take care of this on your own time. We have MUCH too much to do today.

Preactivity

First, download the Word document and save as with your Last name and today's date. Open the new Word document. I am pasting the document here to make it easy to navigate, but you should type into your own Word document. Be sure to include your name in the header and number the pages.  You will print out and check your name off of the roster when you have finished.

C. Plan outfits to wear to various events

You are in France shopping for three different outfits. You will be purchasing an outfit to wear to 1. a party with your new French friends, 2. a wedding you will attend there, and  3. a weekend at the beach. You have a budget of  600 euros to spend for all three outfits. Before you start getting all excited, this amount is  $ 866.169 USD! You will need to save a lot of money before your trip!

You will need to give the article of clothing, the color and size (in French of course!) and price. You will need a top, bottom, and shoes for each outfit. You will calculate the price in Euros and the price in US dollars as well.
