Product Description
This Planning Thanksgiving {Differentiated} Math Project gets students practicing a wide variety of key math skills while working their way through a fun real-world scenario. Students will have a blast planning the details of their family's Thanksgiving! They must determine travel plans, plan for their shopping trip and purchase food for Thanksgiving dinner, calculate what time each dish should be cooked, make the pumpkin pie (of course), and much more!

There are two different versions of this project included: basic and advanced. While most activities are the same, the main difference is that the advanced version includes decimals and decimal operations (particularly with money). The basic version is ideal for 4th grade, while the advanced version is ideal for 5th grade.

Skills covered:
• Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division
• Interpreting remainders
• Fractions (because Thanksgiving is early in the year, there are only a few basic fractions within this packet)
• Elapsed time
• Decimals and decimal operations*

*Only in the advanced version of this packet.

Included with this Planning Thanksgiving Math Project:
• Instructions for use
• Basic project packet (27 pages of math activities)
• Advanced project packet (27 pages of math activities)

Please Note: This packet is meant to be used in its entirety over multiple days. Students will get the most benefit from seeing how math is used throughout the entire Thanksgiving planning process!
