This no-prep collaborative review project will get your kids to design an amusement park as part of Project Based Learning. This covers EVERY 4th grade geometry and Measurement and Data standard; as well as a few fraction based standards! Set it up to be group work, or have students work through independently. This is one project your kids will absolutely love.
To start, students will get some background knowledge by reading a passage about a famous theme park we all know and love-Disneyland! Higher level thinking questions follow the passage so those critical reading skills are activated.
Next, students will work with their team to determine what they want to include in their park. With options to choose food, drinks, games, rides and decorations there is plenty opportunity for students to work on their collaboration skills. Students will use information given to decide which items they want in their park-there's pros and cons to every choice! For example, the world's tallest roller coaster will draw in people looking for a thrill; but most people won't want to ride this coaster because it's way too scary!
After everyone is in agreement, students will practice converting. They will use the given information to fill in the chart. They will convert using inches, feet, and yards. Area and perimeter is also on this chart so students will be able to brush up on these skills. And some items only have the area and width given, so students will have to work backwards to figure out the length!
Now that all of the planning is done, students get to the step they look forward to the most. They will create their floor plan of the park. This will require students to work on their communication skills-it's important that everyone gets a voice on this project.
After they have created and colored their park according to the directions given, students will answer questions about their park. Questions will focus on basic math skills (e.g. adding areas), writing fractions (what fraction of your decorations are trees?), converting fractions to decimals, (write the number of ponds as a decimal), and determining and classifying angles (measure the angle of each piece of your circular gift shop). While some questions only ask students to give the numerical answer, others require students to write a written response.
To end the project, students need to create a line plot to show the widths of their attractions. Questions follow the line plot, asking students to compare frequencies and determine the difference between the longest and shortest ride.
This product includes every page as a black and white page or a full color page. This will allow you to print which packet will work best based on your printer options. Each packet is 17 pages in length-these can be printed double sided to save paper :)
This fully engaging activity covers every geometry and measurement/data standard of the fourth grade Common Core standards. As an added bonus, ELA standards are also covered (writing, speaking and listening, reading informational text) as well as some fraction based standards!
