Project Based Learning (PBL) is a great way to enrich students and help them to see their math skills in a real world setting. In these Common Core aligned projects students will enjoy Writing, Social Studies, and Life Skills Connections. This package includes 4 projects: What a Vacation!, Road Trip USA, Charity for the Holidays, & Get with the Plan. Projects feature basic multiplication & division facts, addition and subtraction of large numbers, adding money, and utilizing input / output tables to find and perpetuate patterns. Package 1is considered first marking period 4th grade math skill practice.
Each project includes a brief background and explanation, to do list, planning area, comprehension questions, technology connections (in most), and culmination project suggestions. Teacher's Note pages are included for each project listing Common Core standards, activator activity, notes to the teacher, and common uses. Personally I have used all of these projects in my 4th grade classroom and my students have loved them! I have used these projects in two ways: (1.) as individual enrichment projects for students who have tested out of the topic content via pretesting or (2.) as collaborative projects in a rotation based classroom. True Project Based Learning starts with lessons in the classroom and ends with a real life artifact as a result of those lessons.
