You and your students will love this second grade project based learning resource! Teach your students math, reading, and writing through this project-based learning activity.

Your students will learn about and apply research skills, writing sentences, collecting data, graphing, and subtracting from 100 during this PBL. It includes a teacher guide walking you through each step.

A page is also included to explain each element of project-based learning and how this is incorporated into the project.
