In this activity, the students plan the layout for a Fall Carnival at their school. They use their knowledge of area, perimeter, and multiplicative comparisons to create a design plan and write a paragraph to justify their selections. The components of the Fall Carnival include a pumpkin patch, corn maze, hay ride, fun jump, bobbing for apples, photo booth, face painting, and a dunking booth.
I have included the student sheet, an answer sheet, grid paper, and a rubric for grading.
This project focuses on the following Common Core Standards:
4.OA.2 Multiply or divide to solve word problems involving multiplicative comparison, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem, distinguishing multiplicative comparison from additive comparison.
4.MD.3 Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.
This project perfectly aligns to ENGAGE NY Module 3 Topic A!
