### Description

This online activity puts your students in the shoes of a party planner as they utilize their measurement and budgeting skills to plan a friend’s birthday party! This digital resource is 100% online and can be used on Google Classroom and Google Drive.

Plan A Party is a math project based learning activity (PBL) that results in creating a party for a friend, needing to budget, calculate area, calculate perimeter, convert U.S. customary measurements, and add decimals. Along the way, students will budget and make real-life decisions, all while practicing their vital measurement skills, developing 21st-century skills, communicating, and designing.

This PBL is self-differentiating, meaning that students have the ability to work at their own pace and go as deep as they would like to with their learning.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
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. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
