Using map skills they've learned in class, students must design their own amusement park. Students must include map elements such as scale, a legend, symbols and more! They must also write about and explain their "best" ride. One of my students' favorite projects! A fun and unique way to wrap up a mapping unit or as a fun project for social studies!
I encourage the students to pick a theme for their park - I've had Rock N' Roll Parks, Vampire Parks etc. A fun and unique way to finish a Geography or Mapping Unit!
- Detailed assignment sheet (2 versions - 1 with scale and 1 without scale)
- Mapping Essentials Handout
- Amusement Park Planner worksheet
- Themed Writing Paper
- Two marking guides - you choose which works best for you (also includes scale / no scale versions)
