My students always loved the Black Friday Advertisement project {with rubric included for easy grading}. It's an easy activity to facilitate and prepare for the Thanksgiving break. The past five years I've had an administrator come and do a surprise informal evaluation the DAY before break. This project has been great to show students actively engaged with real world applications at Thanksgiving. Every administrator has always commented that it was nice to see the students engaged in math and learning how it applies to Black Friday. These activities are sure to keep the last couple days before the Thanksgiving break fun and full of math content. I hope these activities are helpful in your classroom too! 

Happy Teaching!
