This project will allow students to be very creative. They will be planning a road trip for their family and estimating the cost of the entire trip. This project takes the student step by step through planning a trip until they reach their total cost. They will calculate miles per gallon/fuel for the trip, cost of food expenses, hotel and activities when they reach their destination. This could be used as a center, extra credit or other project in the classroom. It is Common Core Aligned in fourth grade with these standards: 4.MD.2, 4.NBT.4, 4.NBT.5 and 4.MD.1.
