Perfect for: Mother’s Day morning teas, Father’s Day morning teas, meet the teacher celebrations, open day celebrations and thank you celebrations as there are a range of options.
Includes a fun differentiated maths, two part project for grade 4, 5 and 6 students to use higher order thinking skills and plan a REAL celebration for parents or helpers.
In part 1, students work individually or in groups on differentiated maths planning black line masters. NOTE: This can be done for fun and without a celebration to follow. The tasks are as follows and are linked to their relevant maths concept:
Celebration Location: coordinates
Food and Drinks: operations
Decorations – Paper Chains: length
Decoration – Photo Booth: length and width
Favours/Gifts - Coupons: time
Favours/Gifts - Corner Bookmarks: area and perimeter
Invitations (4 options): symmetry
Colour Scheme: gathering data
Gift Wrap: rotations
If you decide to have a real celebration, in part two students use the information from part 1 to prepare for the celebration!
This pack includes a two part project which contains:
“Plan a Celebration” teachers’ notes.
“Plan a Celebration” black line masters.
An easier version of the project for different levels of abilities.
Challenge questions for different levels of abilities.
“Prepare for a Celebration” teachers’ notes.
“Prepare for a Celebration” black line masters.
Some coloured options included.
NOTE: This project is designed to make teaching easy for you and requires your students to do the work to plan a celebration. Most of the preparation requires paper and cardboard and there are only a few extra resources required. It is generic enough to suit a range of different types of parent or helper celebrations. Certain black line masters can also be taken out if you wish not to include an element in your celebration.
