Product Description
As the school year or semester winds down, students seem to become "antsy". They need something that is self-directed so there's no time for them to "zone out" or cause a disruption. This is when I like to have students work on project based learning.

This year, my 6th grade students are going to work on a research project with a twist - they will research a trip for their Pine Cone Pets!

You might know about a famous book character known as Flat Stanley that many an elementary student made a version of and sent off to a faraway relative to see what adventures Stanley could have. Pine Cone Pets is based on the same idea although we won't actually mail off our pets! Instead, students will research all the ins and outs of where their pet will visit and combine their information into a PowerPoint complete with budget and bibliography!

Students have to demonstrate learning in these areas:
1. Researching on the internet effectively (using more than just Google!)
2. Conversion rates
3. Using a budget
4. Planning an itinerary
All while thinking creatively about what their pet will experience!

This resource includes:
★ Full directions for both teacher and students
★ Rubric with explanation of my Fair Grading system
★ Links to a mini-lesson as well as free digital tutorials
★ Excel based budget for both students and teachers (teacher edition has formulas)
★ Editable Research Steps for you to add due dates & reflection sheet for students

Thanks & Enjoy!
