Bundle is a new application that easily lets you identify how much people — similar to you demographically — spend in different categories. It’s location-specific, at least by county. If you, as I do, create opportunities for students to learn about budgeting and have them develop their own, Bundle would be a good tool for them to get a realistic idea about how much they might have to spend.
I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Students To Create Budgets.
One of my favorite learning activities each year is a neighborhood comparison activity. I’ve written about it in my forthcoming book, English Language Learners: Teaching Strategies That Work, and will try to make the time to share more here on the blog. Bundle would be ideal for that lesson if they had more spending activity categorized by zip codes.
Thanks to Read Write Web for the tip.
