PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PROJECT BASED LEARNING (PBL): ICE CREAM SHOP: 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 PBL unit incorporates collaboration and differentiation by providing student choice. This 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 as they investigate and complete their final product.

This ICE CREAM SHOP PBL unit incorporates 21st Century skills with challenging, engaging, and creative activities.

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

Feedback from a Customer
"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."
