PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Looking for an engaging, common-core aligned, and FUN activity to enrich your students? They have been chosen to plan their Thanksgiving weekend from start to finish - from shopping for groceries to Black Friday shopping! They must make several decisions about the weekend, practicing several common core math standards along the way. Students will love getting to be in charge of planning their Thanksgiving break, and you will love the enriched math practice they get along the way. This is a great math project based learning (PBL) task that your students will beg to work on!

This pack would be great for enriching second graders, perfect for third graders, and even a great review for upper grades!

The preview includes a glimpse of several of the pages in the pack.

Here are the tasks students will take part in as they plan the weekend:
•Shopping Trip: Students use addition/subtraction to plan and shop for groceries for Thanksgiving dinner. (Differentiated sheets available)
•Table Setting: Students measure the different dishes using an inch ruler and lay out the table based upon the measurements.
•Cooking Schedule: Students create a cooking schedule based on given prep and cook times. (Differentiated sheets available)
•Black Friday: Students go Black Friday shopping and help their friends count their money and make decisions about what they can and can't buy.
•Leftovers for Lunch: Students are having a leftover pie party at school and must look at the pies everyone's family brought in and determine the fraction that was eaten and the fraction that is leftover.
