What educators are saying

A little elementary for grade 7 but that is totally my bad. Would work amazingly in a grade 4 or 5 classroom!
My children loved this activity during distance learning. It gave them another option besides worksheets to keep their skills sharp.

Looking for an exciting and engaging way to teach your 5th graders about adding, subtracting, and multiplying decimals? Look no further than our "Adding, Subtracting, Multiplying Decimals Project Based Learning for 5th" math project! This is a great PBL for Valentine's Day or any other day of the year with the engaging candy shop theme.

This week-long math project is designed to help students develop a deep understanding of these key mathematical concepts through hands-on activities that challenge and inspire them. With a focus on real-world applications and problem-solving, this program will help your students develop the critical thinking and analytical skills they need to succeed in math and beyond.

Students use the following skills in this project:

Plotting (x,y) coordinates

Scale & Finding Area with Fractions

Multiplying Fractions (to find area)

Multiplication and Division of Money (calculating costs and profit)

Creating Fractions to Represent Candy Categories

Optional: Candy Grab Bags Activity (Converting between fraction, decimal, and percent)

It's every kid's dream to own a candy store! Kids will first "build" and name their candy store. After that, they get to choose what candy to put in it! They will add candy displays to their store using the dimensions provided (in 1/2" scale). They will also calculate the cost of each display and their profit. The kids get to choose every aspect of their store, including their sales prices, which allows for critical thinking skill development! During this sweet project, kids will practice graphing points on a coordinate plane, fractions (halves), and decimal operations.

This project-based learning activity is VERY HIGH INTEREST and spans 1-2 weeks. Students will answer the driving question: What Math skills do I need to create and run a business? It's Common Core aligned for Grade 5 and can be differentiated for many different ability levels.

This resource includes directions on what to do before beginning, connections to other subjects, technology integration, discussion points, and the math process.
