Want to combine Math and Social Studies?
This unique project has students combine what they have learned about place value and making a map.
Using the plot of Little Red Riding Hood, students are given the task of helping Red fool the Big Bad Wolf. The task cards are used to create mailboxes with the corresponding numbers. Students will use their understanding of place value to solve each task card. Then, students order the numbers from greatest to least or least to greatest (TEACHER'S CHOICE).
Students use the mailboxes to create a map of Granny's neighborhood. Students are told Granny's address, so they must choose a task card that does not equal that address to display as her home. This way the Big Bad Wolf will be duped. This project requires students to apply what they have learned about maps (map title, compass rose, map key, etc.). I have not included a map template because I want to encourage students to be imaginative and construct different maps.
There is a student rubric! YES! A rubric that students can easily use.
This is a perfect project where students create instead of simply filling out a worksheet.
