#### What educators are saying

I loved how it incorporated a number of different areas at once. It gave students a chance to review skills already taught in a fun project.
Fantastic Resource. This project was used to teach decimal operations as well as perimeter and area.

### Description

This project is an open ended way for students to practice area and perimeter in a real world and relevant way. This project is rigorous and involves multiplication and division of whole numbers and decimals. Students will design a zoo using required elements (either required area or perimeter for each given animal using a rectangle or square) and as an extension students will preform a needs assessment for other zoo elements. Students are required to find the total area of their 6 habitats so that they can to divide by 25 to get the number of trees needed at their zoo and then divide by 50 to get the number of rocks for their zoo. Students will then multiply by decimals to get the total cost of the required elements. Finally they will add up their prices to get the total amount needed to start up their zoo.

UPDATED July 2020- This wonderful project comes in a digital format using Google Slides- perfect for distance learning!
