Activity Description

In this interactive activity, students will develop their understanding of accounting principles by categorizing transactions as debits or credits. They will be presented with a set of transactions related to a fictional company and their task will be to accurately classify each transaction.

Students will carefully read and analyze each transaction, considering the impact on the company's financial accounts. They will then determine whether the transaction should be categorized as a debit or credit entry.

To facilitate the activity, students will be provided with a worksheet containing a table where they can list and categorize the transactions. They will categorize each transaction as either a debit or credit entry by dragging and dropping the transaction into the respective column.

This activity provides an engaging and hands-on experience for students to further their understanding of debits and credits in accounting, preparing them for more advanced financial concepts and applications in the future.
