Description

National Parks PROJECT BASED LEARNING DIGITAL VERSION NOW INCLUDED You are going to visit a national park in the United States. You will have to travel to the state of the national park, stay in a hotel or campsite, and pay for the cost of meals. In this PBL unit, students can view a PowerPoint of popular National Parks to help decide which ones to research.

This project can be completed in groups or individually. There are plenty of activities for differentiation. I did not give a budget. You can easily give your students a budget to spend on the project.

This PBL unit incorporate 21st Century skills with challenging, engaging, and creative activities. There are lots of opportunities for differentiation, cooperative learning, and technology integration.

Model with mathematics. Mathematically proficient students can apply the mathematics they know to solve problems arising in everyday life, society, and the workplace. In early grades, this might be as simple as writing an addition equation to describe a situation. In middle grades, a student might apply proportional reasoning to plan a school event or analyze a problem in the community. By high school, a student might use geometry to solve a design problem or use a function to describe how one quantity of interest depends on another. Mathematically proficient students who can apply what they know are comfortable making assumptions and approximations to simplify a complicated situation, realizing that these may need revision later. They are able to identify important quantities in a practical situation and map their relationships using such tools as diagrams, two-way tables, graphs, flowcharts and formulas. They can analyze those relationships mathematically to draw conclusions. They routinely interpret their mathematical results in the context of the situation and reflect on whether the results make sense, possibly improving the model if it has not served its purpose.
