Project Based Learning Activity: Design A Theme Park

This project integrates elements of imagination, math, problem solving, design, and planning as students create their own theme park.

There are 17 activities (most are 1 page for each) for students to complete. Each page involves an issue or topic they must solve, design, create, or research. There are 26 printable pages for the PBL.

Pages, Title, and Descriptions:
7, 8 Introduction:
Students are introduced to their task of creating a theme park.

9 Brainstorm
Students brainstorm everything they know about theme parks, this can be completed as a class to increase everyone’s knowledge

10 What Is It?
Students answer questions relating to the importance of theme parks and why people find them to be special.

11 Make It Official
Students create a park name, design a logo, and create a slogan.

12 Advertising
Students design a billboard to advertise the new park.

13-16 Supply Budget
This is a four-part process where students pick supplies for their park, organize the supplies based on types, create a bar graph of materials, and answer questions regarding their choices.

17-21 The Rides
Students create and design up to 12 rides (four per page).
Each page has labels for the type of ride to create.
-On the fourth RIDE page students will also create the park entrance and more.
-Also included is a blank page so students can create whatever other rides they want.

22 Children’s Playground
Students design a playground area for kids in the park.

23 Marketing Strategy
Students must come up with valuable reasons why people should come and visit the park.

24 App Design
Students must create/develop three still-shots from the the new theme park app.

Students must create text message conversations to friends and family telling them all about the brand new park.

Students create a food menu and prices for the park. On the second page they must create two word problems, which must be solved by classmates.

28 Fancy Food
Students must create a brand new food for the park. *Deep fried chocolate chip cookies sound like a good idea.*

29-32 Mapping the Park
For the final portion, students will create a map and map key of their newly created park. These maps could be one or more pages depending on how detailed the students are.

PLUS: Extra pages added for international spelling differences on those particular pages.

As students work through each page, they will make their own decisions and choose the outcomes based on information they learn. By the end, all students will have completed the project, but each version will be based on the creator’s imagination, creativity, and knowledge base.

All pages can be geared towards multiple grade levels, although for some younger students the teacher may need to give more explicit instructions.

Students may choose to use multiple resources to complete each page. They might even choose to work with a partner, but you get final say on that.
