# Lesson 26 Book Drive

Let’s plan a book sale fundraiser.

## Warm-up Notice and Wonder: Books for Sale

What do you notice? What do you wonder?

## Activity 1 Book Prices

Two schools buy science books for $8 from a publisher to sell at their book sale. School A sells the books for $12. School B sells the books for $12.90.

Who do you think sells more science books? Why?

How much profit does each school make if they each sell 35 books?

School B sells 10 science books. How many science books does School A have to sell to raise about the same amount of money?

## Activity 2 Plan a Book Fair

Price list from the publisher:

Plan a book fair:

type of book | price |
---|---|

boxed sets & collections | |

comic books | |

science books | |

chapter books | |

history books | |

audiobooks | |

activity books | |

reference books | |

Spanish language books | |

biographies |

Choose 3–5 types of books you want to order.

Decide on the mark-up price for each type of book you chose.

Estimate the amount of money your school will raise as a profit with your book sale.

Record an estimate that is:

too low

about right

too high

Show or explain your reasoning for the estimate. Include the assumptions you made.
