Scholars will create a menu for a restaurant, we used this as an end of year project.

Scholars will:
-Add decimals to find the total of each section of their menu (entree, sides, desserts, drinks)
-Create "combination plates" that offer a discount that will have scholars calculating different percents and subtracting decimals
-Create a menu that falls within an area requirement
-Draw a diagram of their menu
-Create percentages based on the sections of their menus
-Includes "check-ins" which allow peers to grade sections of the project and give feedback

Scholars got really into the area piece, I had 6th graders finding the area of circles for their poke-ball menus (they had not learned circles yet!), while others were fine keeping to the rectangle or triangles. Lots of options for differentiation, for example I had a scholar using whole numbers while the rest of the crew worked with decimals.
Find a percent of a quantity as a rate per 100 (e.g., 30% of a quantity means 30/100 times the quantity); solve problems involving finding the whole, given a part and the percent.
Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used.
