That first paycheck can come as a shock if you’re not prepared. We’re talking about taxes, of course. It’s an important life lesson (and math lesson, too), which is why we’ve put together this interactive whiteboard lesson all about paychecks and taxes. Try this “What Happened to My Paycheck?” lesson with your 6th-8th graders!
You’ll begin this lesson by assessing prior knowledge around taxes and doing some brainstorming around tax categories (federal, state, and local), as well as services and programs the government funds through taxes. Students will get to see a sample paycheck and you’ll do some calculations on a blank one as a class. Finally, there’s some independent work plus an exit ticket to check for understanding.
