PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This math project has the students plan a SUMMER vacation for their family or friends. They budget gas, food, entertainment, etc.

* You do need to plan ahead and collect restaurant "to go" menus, a map, and travel brochures. (Teacher directions are given with the lesson). You also need access to computer/internet for the students.

I used with my 3rd grade gifted and talented students. Other years I used it for a long term fast finisher project. Great for an end of the year activity...plan a summer vacation.

It covers: map skills, mileage, estimation, rounding, addition, calculator skills, and much much more with "real life" elements. Higher level and critical thinking skills are needed.

Students use a map to choose a destination. Estimate the cost of the trip, find how much they will spend on hotels, food, gas, entertainment, etc. Internet use is needed.

Depending on how you use it in your classroom it can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months, it is up to you on the duration of time. I also used it with other (non- GT) students and omitted a few of the sections that may have been too difficult for them. But ALL had a great time and were excited about this activity.

Each year my students thought this was one of their favorite activities because it was so "real life".

***This is posted 2x in my store due to difficulty searching for it and cue words. *** It is also listed as Math Project- Create Your Own Vacation which does not use the word "Summer".

This project uses the words "summer vacation" to make it more seasonal. If you would like the regular "vacation" project WITHOUT the word summer click here.
