In Math we calculate with money - Euro and Cent. To simulate a real life situation for the children, we organized a cake sale. Every pupil of the class baked a cake at home and than we sell them at school. It was hard work for the children, but in the end they earned their first own money and were really proud of their work.
The children wished to spend the money for some new books for our libary in class and donate some money for a social project in our hometown.
