Teach an introductory lesson to Google Sheets by doing some holiday shopping!
Link to Template (Click TEMPLATE in the right corner to make a copy)
What will students learn?
Students will learn how to enter data, enter basic formulas, use FUNCTIONS, and create a graph by following the directions in the second tab. They can even checkoff the items as they work using the checkboxes.
Where do students “shop”?
Students shop using this imaginary inventory. Shop for toys, household items, electronics, or even clothes and personal items!
How can I differentiate for different learners?
This activity is geared towards students in Grades 3-5. You may differentiate the activity by using different templates linked using the Tabs at the bottom of the Sheet. For example, if you want a template with the formulas or headings already inserted, you could use the tab labeled “Differentiation with Formulas”.
What do students graph?
I added this easy activity for students to graph sales of popular toys. Then, use the checklist below to analyze the data and enter formulas!
How may I assess learning?
Use this nifty exit ticket to assess learning! Add questions, tasks and activities as needed! You can pretty much turn Google Sheets into an activity pack! Or, add a rubric on a new tab!

Do your students do any “holiday shopping” using Google Sheets? I’d love to see your lesson!
