PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a great alternative project for students doing state reports.


Plan a vacation for the Smith Family! Students will have the opportunity to plan a six-day vacation for a family of 5. Students will pick a state and choose activities, airfare, dinner, and lodging. Using Internet search engines, students will have the opportunity to research, and price out tourist attractions in the state. Students are also able to select where the family eats dinner and stays overnight.


The kids get to choose every aspect of the vacation package and then they will need to create persuasive presentations in order to convince the Smith family why they should visit their state.

During this project, kids will:
• Practice decimal operations
• Gather and summarizing informational text
• Use multiple sources to gather information
• Write persuasive pieces
• Build a variety of speaking and listening skills
• And Much much more!


This project-based learning activity takes about 1-2 weeks. It was written for 5th graders in mind, but it can be differentiated for different learning styles and abilities.

This project includes notes for teacher, research notes sheets for students, fact sheet about Smith family, tutorial pages on using Kayak.com and Yelp.com, plus practice pages to use for modeling and structured practice.
