Product Description

Welcome to Camp Read S'more! This is a project-based learning unit that I designed for my 2nd graders to end the year. I would recommend for 2nd or 3rd grade! All lessons are camp-themed. This unit includes many math and writing activities. To integrate reading, I encouraged my kids to bring flashlights to school and we read in the "dark" every day with flashlights during the project! They LOVED it, and your kids will too!

I used this unit as a week-long project-based learning unit. I transformed my entire classroom into a camp! I put up tents, put up some fake trees and leaves, made a fake fire with tissue paper, borrowed some glowing lanterns, and so much more! My kids had a blast, and yours will too!!

Activities included:

• Cover page
• Separating classmates into different sized tents (3 tent options - each hold a different number of people and take up different square units)
• Requirements for creating a "blueprint" of the campsite (must fit all tents, bathrooms, kitchen, etc.)
• Buying supplies (must stay within the budget and find total cost!)
• Creating a camp schedule (working with elapsed time)
• Buying food (must stay within the budget and find total cost!)
• S'mores grocery list (must calculate how many ingredients they will need to buy s'mores for the whole class, and then they have to graph!)
• Ice cream shopping (different budget for ice cream and toppings)
• Bean Bag Toss (must have access to a bean bag toss for this activity)
• Water Bottle Flipping Challenge (must have water bottles for this activity)
• Egg Race (must have fake easter eggs and plastic spoons for this activity)
• Paper Airplane Challenge (tons of simple airplane tutorial on YouTube!)
• Counting Wild Animals Spotted in the Woods (counting tally marks and graphing)
• How to Make a S'more (writing activity; first, next, then, finally)
• Design a Camp T-Shirt
• Write a Scary Story for the Bonfire (hint: turn off the lights, and have your kids present their scary stories in front of a "fireplace" video from YouTube!!!)
• Write a Script for a Camp Read S'more Commercial (have your kids practice and record it on Flipgrid!!)
• Camping Word Search
