Great end of the year project for math! This party planning project incorporates many different skills covered throughout the year and also gives your kiddos some real world experience with using a budget and prices of items in the stores!
How to use it:
1. get flyers from the local grocery stores/party city, etc
2. list 4 different party locations on the board (home, park, chucky cheese, skyzone, etc)
3. students need to create a guest list to see how much of each item they will need
4. have your students pick a location and pick items that they want to have at the party
5. students will fill all of this in in the table
6. students multiply their quantities and add all of their items together to see if they fit within their $500 budget
7. Students can add/remove items depending on how much money they have "spent"
8. Students will answer fraction questions about their guest list
9. Students will answer area/perimeter questions about their party setup
10. Students will answer elapsed time questions about their starting/ending time
I use this project with my students who are working below grade level, so I wanted to differentiate and make the questioning as user friendly as possible! I want them to focus on using these real world skills in a fun and exciting way!
Any feedback is appreciated!!
