***THIS RESOURCE IS NOW DIGITAL for DISTANCE LEARNING***
See below for more details on using it with Google Slides.
This project integrates elements of problem solving, collaboration, classroom design, and planning as students design their own ultimate playground.
There are 15 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.

Students decide upon a location and date for the festival. They have to decide if school is a viable option and explain why.

Students will be using this festival to raise money for a charity or cause. This page is used to brainstorm and discuss options. Then they’ll write why they have chosen a specific cause or charity.

After the acts have been selected, students will now schedule when everyone performs. There are rules and regulations for scheduling, so it’s important for students to be organized and take their time.
-Included are 3 variations of scheduling pages (you may choose which would work best).
-If there is not enough room, allow students to create their schedule on separate paper.
21-24 Supply Run
Students pick supplies and materials they will need for the festival. They have 200 credits to spend and cannot go over. Then they must discuss why they chose items and how they’ll be used.
-There are FOUR PARTS to the Supply Run.

Also included is a Map Key page for students to use.
Students share pictures (drawings) on the social media app, Festigram.
34-36 Problem Solver
Students are given situations that may occur during the festival, and they must create a plan to solve/fix them.
