Product Description
Beach resorts can be exciting getaways for families and friends, but what would it take for students to create and design their very own? This project based learning activity does just that, allowing students to use their creativity and imagination to create a resort. From pools and fantastic food to budgeting and blueprints, this resort will be whatever your students can imagine.

Build A Beach Resort integrates elements of research, planning, math, ELA, and more skills as students plan, build, and design a beach resort. By the end of this PBL students will work through the process of creating a beach resort from scratch that’s filled with activities that’ll keep vacationers wanting to come back year after year.

Students may need to have access to a variety of resources to complete this PBL. This could include maps, internet access, and laptops/computers/devices.

There are 21 activities (most are 1 page each) for students to complete. Each page involves an issue or topic they must solve, design, create, or research.

As students work through each page, they will make their own decisions and choose the outcomes based on information they learn. By the end, all students will have completed the project, but each version will be based on the creator’s imagination, creativity, and knowledge base.
