Vacations aren’t just for the beach. There’s a large amounts of people that love to spend weekends and take quick trips visiting cold climates for skiing, hiking, ice fishing, and sitting around enormous bonfires drinking hot cocoa. Now students can create the perfect winter retreat to relax, recharge, and have a little bit of fun. This little getaway won’t be as huge as a mountain resort, but it will have plenty of space for any activities you can think of.
Northern Exposure is a project based learning activity that integrates elements of math, art, STEM, and ELA skills as students plan and design a winter lover's perfect getaway.
Students may need to have access to a variety of resources to complete this PBL. This could include maps, internet access, and laptops/computers/devices. There are over 13 activities (most are 1 page each) for students to complete. Each page involves an issue or topic they must solve, design, create, or research.
As students work through each page, they will make their own decisions and choose the outcomes based on information they learn. By the end, all students will have completed the project, but each version will be based on the creator’s imagination, creativity, and knowledge base.
