The B.R.I.D.G.E.S. class participated in an Ice Cream Sundae Challenge for their Community Based Instruction activity this week. The day before the event, students were put in teams of 3-4. They had to work together to decide what flavor ice cream and 3 toppings their group would like to buy at Publix staying within their $20.00 budget including tax. Students researched different flavors of ice cream and toppings along with the cost of these items on the Publix website.
Once at Publix, the teams were off and running locating all the items on their list. Students had to use their problem-solving skills and work as team when they were unable to locate a product or were not able to find the correct size product. Before checking out, they had to make sure they stayed within budget including tax.
The students did a fabulous job using the self-checkout registers. After returning to school, everyone enjoyed their frozen desserts!
