PACK IN LOTS OF SKILLS AND CONCEPTS IN THIS MULTI-DAY COOPERATIVE LEARNING TASK!
Students will dig in and get busy planning to build a fence for the new park! Then there's a "trip" to the hardware store to check out costs and learn about additional materials. Can they complete the project and come in under budget??
This task will take 2-3 days & can be modified for grades 4-6. While it can be completed right in the classroom, the task opens the opportunity for a real-life experience by taking a math field trip to the hardware store....clipboards and pencils in hand! I highly recommend if you can swing it. Your students will deal with measurement, perimeter, budget, and cost analysis.
