Open-ended Math projects challenge students to come up with different solutions to problems - there is no one right answer.
In this Valentine's Day challenge, students will purchase invitations, stamps, treats and small gifts for a Valentine's party with a budget of only $40.
Turn the activity into a great bulletin board display by making Valentine "cards" to showcase the project.
My class thoroughly enjoys this type of problem-solving in center activities or group/partner work.
