Description

Math Project Based Learning, Math Enrichment & Challenge

This math PBL project will have your students practicing real-world math applications while having a BLAST! This project based learning task is a great extension and enrichment activity for your early finishers. It allows them to act as a zookeeper building a brand new zoo in their town. They must make several decisions about the zoo, practicing several common core math standards along the way. Students will love acting as a zookeeper, and you will love the enriched math practice they get along the way.

This pack would be great for enriching second graders, perfect for third graders, and even a great review for upper grades! This is perfect for an end of the year cumulative or spiral math project!

This product is DIFFERENTIATED for you and your students, and includes U.S., Australian, and Canadian versions!! It also includes both Printable & Digital Google Slides versions.

HERE ARE THE TASKS STUDENTS WILL COMPLETE:

•The Animals: Students use addition/subtraction within 100 or 1,000 (differentiated) to select the animals for their zoo.

•The Zoo Grounds: Students measure animals using an inch ruler and lay out the exhibits based upon the measurements.

•The Zoo Keeper's Schedule: Students create a schedule as the zookeeper to make sure animals are fed.

•A New Exhibit: Students use geometry knowledge to lay out a new exhibit, including counting sides and vertices to order enough materials for the exhibit.

•Feeding the Animals: Students must make decisions about what food to order for the animals. Students write fractions to show animals' eating preferences.

•The Souvenir Shop: Students will help a group of field-trip students count their money for the souvenir shop, and help them make decisions about what they can/can't buy.

•How's Business?: Students examine data about different exhibits' popularity and create a bar graph using the data. Students answer questions based on the data and bar graph.

Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
Add and subtract within 1000, 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. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
Add up to four two-digit numbers using strategies based on place value and properties of operations.
Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
