Description

(TPT FEATURED PRODUCT) Everyone loves ice cream! As your students open their own ice cream shop, they also learn about the history of ice cream, entrepreneurship, and economics. This student-centered project based learning math unit incorporates collaboration and differentiation by providing student choice. This OPEN AN ICE CREAM SHOP real-world challenge requires students to use inquiry, critical thinking, and their creative minds during the high-interest cross-curricular activities [math, social studies, ELA]. Students integrate digital learning into the project based learning unit as they investigate and complete their final product. (Updated to include digital learning)

Students have an opportunity to create their own menu, make their favorite flavor of ice cream, and more. This project can be done collaboratively as a group or as an independent study.

TEACHERS LIKE YOU SAID ABOUT MY DIGITAL RESOURCES...

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "This has been my favorite purchase year-to-date. I had to stay behind with students who couldn't go on a field trip, and they didn't feel left out at all. I used it to reinforce close reading skills, context clues, decimal work and research skills. On the last day, we held an ice cream social and presented our projects."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I utilized this resource for my students when we were participating in distance learning. They loved it! I plan to make this a yearly activity with my students as it will work well in person as well. "

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "This is highly engaging! Thank you for your attention to detail and easy step-by-step instructions for both kids and me. What a fun way to reinforce our ATL skills. We had some fun end products with the ice cream vans. Will definitely use this again."

Use appropriate tools strategically. Mathematically proficient students consider the available tools when solving a mathematical problem. These tools might include pencil and paper, concrete models, a ruler, a protractor, a calculator, a spreadsheet, a computer algebra system, a statistical package, or dynamic geometry software. Proficient students are sufficiently familiar with tools appropriate for their grade or course to make sound decisions about when each of these tools might be helpful, recognizing both the insight to be gained and their limitations. For example, mathematically proficient high school students analyze graphs of functions and solutions generated using a graphing calculator. They detect possible errors by strategically using estimation and other mathematical knowledge. When making mathematical models, they know that technology can enable them to visualize the results of varying assumptions, explore consequences, and compare predictions with data. Mathematically proficient students at various grade levels are able to identify relevant external mathematical resources, such as digital content located on a website, and use them to pose or solve problems. They are able to use technological tools to explore and deepen their understanding of concepts.
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.
Multiply a whole number of up to four digits by a one-digit whole number, and multiply two two-digit numbers, using strategies based on place value and the properties of operations. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
