Are you looking for a project that students can do in groups that is fun, engaging and reviews several standards? This project allows students to research pizza by reading non fiction text (web based and accessible to all), taking notes and writing an informational paragraph. Groups will then move into designing their own pizza shop. They will make logos, menus, a floor plan and so much more. Students will learn how to collect data on their ideas and reflect to improve their business. Included in this product: Teacher tips, a list of standards and how they are used, a reading list including book club books as well as a comprehensive packet that is ready to print, copy and go! Students love the creativity and collaboration. You will also find three simple rubrics to give you students feedback. One for ELA, one for math and one for teamwork.
Skills covered in this engaging project:
- Graphing and data collection
- Area and Perimeter
- Informational reading and writing
Not to mention the invaluable skills that are learned when students collaborate as a team. This packet is ready for your students to take and run with. Minimal instruction is needed as each section comes with directions. Perfect for the end of a trimester, near a break or during testing when you want to give your students time to get up and move, talk and be creative. Your math, reading, writing and art stars can all have a chance to shine with this project.
