Product Description
Are you looking for a new (and fun!?!) way to assess your students' understanding of elapsed time?? Check out this project where the students plan a field trip - everything from the location to the cost. The students love getting to "be the teacher" and plan their own field trip, and you'll love all of the skills the questions cover!

In this project-based learning activity, students will work together to create their own field trip proposal. They must think about all of the practicalities included in planning a field trip – distance, duration, transportation, and cost.

This task is common-core aligned: 3.MD.A.1: “Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram” and 4.MD.A.2: “Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit.”

I have used this project in my own fourth grade classroom, and my students love it! We usually do it as a culminating activity for our elapsed time unit, though it would also be a fun end-of-year activity. It would also work for higher achieving third graders or as a review for fifth graders.

There are many ways to easily differentiate this project to meet the needs of your students.

A rubric and an example proposal are also included.
