This is a second enrichment project I created to help push my higher level math thinkers in grade 2 to the next level of real-world math application. Though I used it for grade 2, it could easily be used for grades 3 and 4 as well.
In this project, students are given the task to design their own school by deciding the number of classrooms, floors, teachers, and types of grades and classrooms. They will answer questions about their school and design a floor plan for each floor of their school. They will also use a bar graph to answer questions about students per grade level at the "Math Academy".
The product also includes a space for students to show their work, as well as questions for students to answer about the table they completed. A teacher rubric is included to assess student work. A student reflection rubric and survey are also included to give you feedback about your students' experience with the project. This can be used as a classroom enrichment project, small group project, or even homework based on your students.
Skills assessed include:
-solving multiple step word problems
-adding two-digit numbers within 100
-adding two-digit numbers within 1000
-adding multiple two-digit numbers
-addition strategies within 100
-subtraction strategies within 100
