Real-World Algebra Activity. Use A variety on Items around the classroom. Set a variable and a price to represent each item. (You can even allow the students to determine the prices). Have the students shop for items or create a shopping list for them.

Great example of using the double bubble in a middle school mathematics classroom. I also love this as an alternative to crowded Venn Diagrams!
