December Resources for your High School Accounting Class

High School Accounting Class Lesson
December high school accounting class lessons

Engaging high school accounting class students can be a challenge after Thanksgiving break and before the much-anticipated Christmas break.  The struggle is real for me too!  So I created my own December accounting resources to incorporate festive resources and activities to captivate my students’ attention to make the connection to the real-world and to make their learning experience both enjoyable and educational.

Students complete a Financial Worksheet, Income Statement, & Balance Sheet for a SANTA’S CHRISTMAS WORKSHOP start-up!

This resource could be used as an AN ASSESSMENT OR FINAL!

Danitra is an entrepreneur who runs a Santa Shop at local elementary schools. She is asking YOUR STUDENTS to help her with her end-of-the-fiscal-period financial statements. Students are prompted to complete each statement and ANALYZE for a true assessment of student understanding!

Frankly, I usually do not get to this lesson until January after I teach financial statments, income statements, and balance sheets, but my students still appreciate the tie-in with Santa’s Workshop.

Santa’s Workshop – Accounting Mini-Simulation is available in my TPT Store.

This digital activity is a perfect way to review CHART OF ACCOUNTS for any high school accounting class (Accounting 1 or Accounting 2).

Students classify accounts as assets, liabilities, and owner’s equity. After they classify, they create a Chart of Accounts for Santa Claus.  An example of a Chart of Accounts is given for students to reference as it may have been a while since they saw a Chart of Accounts.

This resource is  ENGAGING, DIFFERENT, AND FUN!  Students use their critical thinking skills.

The resource includes a teacher’s key and grading suggestions.

Santa’s Chart of Accounts is also available in my TPT Store.
