Activity 8: Lunch in Thailand

While visiting Thailand, you probably ate some of the foods which we made in class. What did you eat? How much money did you spend?

Money in Thailand is called baht. One baht is equal to one American penny. Examples:

50 bahts=50 cents

100 bahts=$1.00

 

Figure out what you paid to eat lunch in Thailand. From the menu below, choose 2 lunch items, 1 dessert, and 1 beverage. You have 10 American dollars ($10.00) to spend on lunch. Record your lunch on the worksheet attached below.
