How Much is a Billion?
Pose the question to your students. How would they illustrate ONE BILLION DOLLARS? To jumpstart the brainstorming, show them the H & R Block Get Your Billion Back commercial. The illustration is to drive home the H & R Block claim that one billion dollars are left behind because of people doing their own taxes.
Be one of the first 50 teachers to submit a concept to receive a $50 gift card for school supplies.
