Product Description
This was a cross-curricular problem based learning project I made last year to complete with my 3rd graders to wrap up our economics unit! This unit covers 4 days and allows students to practice economics, math and writing.

Problem: The school board wants to improve our school using only $10,000. Think of a way to improve the school within this budget that is research-based and helps students learn.

Students must think of an idea (many of my students thought of fidget spinners for each student, bounce ball seats, tablets for every classroom, playground equipment, etc.), research the cost, think about its benefits for education of all students K-5, write a persuasive presentation, budget the amount the improvement will cost, collect data with a survey to ensure that students and teachers approve of their improvement, create a graph using their data, identify the opportunity cost of the situation and present their findings! My students worked in pairs and created presentations using Google Slides to go along with their graphs and survey, but yours could present however you see fit!

Here our some FREE products I used with this project from fellow TPT authors to scaffold students:
