This product is a fabulous review project your students will LOVE! The preview shows 3 of the pages describing the project.
The project has students create a theme park in order to review all the 4th grade common core place value, operations, money, time, and measurement standards include:
- Place Value
- Comparing Numbers
- Rounding Numbers
- Money Word Problems
- Time Word Problems
- Measurement Conversions
It allows them to create a attractions for their theme park and write down the lengths, heights, and time of rides. It allows them to create concession stands with food and menu items and prices for each. Students can then use all that information to create word problems and an answer key on the various concepts listed above.
I have used this project with my 4th grade classes the past 3 years, and they absolutely LOVE it! They have so much fun being creative while reviewing these standards. It is a great way to review concepts before the Georgia Milestones, a fabulous extension project, or a great way to still have kids practice 4th grade standards through an engaging project after the Georgia Milestones!
This product is aligned to the following state standards:
Generalize place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers.
Recognize that in a multi-digit whole number, a digit in one place represents ten times what it represents in the place to its right. For example, recognize that 700 ÷ 70 = 10 by applying concepts of place value and division.
Read and write multi-digit whole numbers using base-ten numerals, number names, and expanded form. Compare two multi-digit numbers based on meanings of the digits in each place, using >, =, and < symbols to record the results of comparisons.
Use place value understanding to round multi-digit whole numbers to any place.
Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.
Fluently add and subtract multi-digit whole numbers using the standard algorithm.
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.
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements.
Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ...
Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
I hope you and your students love this project as much as my class and I do! Please remember to leave feedback!
