Your students are going to plan a vacation for their family. First, they need to pick a destination. They will choose from Disney World in Orlando, Florida where they can enjoy the thrill of an amusement park or choose the mighty Grand Canyon in St. George, Utah where they can see camp, hike and enjoy one of the 7 natural wonders of the world.
In this highly motivational math project the students will figure gas mileage and cost. They will also calculate hotel, food and entertainment costs and create a poster of their work. You can download this project and give it to your students immediately. It has easy to follow directions and even includes a rubric.
This would be a great mini-project for the whole class or just your fast finishers.
