PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you’ve ever been able to go to a theme park, you’d notice that they are often busy. In Orlando, Disney World is in a different stratosphere. Considering the population density of the largest cities in the United States, how do the crowds compare to the most visited theme parks in the world on an average day?

In this 22 page PDF, you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, 3 different assignments for students to use, and an answer key.

Download the preview to see pretty much everything!

-- In “Population Density", students will compare the 6 cities in the US that have the highest populations and calculate their population densities.

-- In “If Disney World were a City”, students will they will calculate the population density of the Disney Parks given average attendance and square miles.

-- In “My Disney Vacation”, students will build on the skills from the first two assignments and analyze the month by month attendance at each of the parks. Students will use this data to determine when they want to take their trip to Disney World. Data for four parks are given so there could be 4 different groups, 4 different stations or partners could work through all four together. Differentiate as desired.
