Product Description
This online activity puts your students in the shoes of a party planner as they utilize their measurement and budgeting skills to plan a friend’s birthday party! This digital resource is 100% online and can be used on Google Classroom and Google Drive.

Plan A Party is a math project based learning activity (PBL) that results in creating a party for a friend, needing to budget, calculate area, calculate perimeter, convert U.S. customary measurements, and add decimals. Along the way, students will budget and make real-life decisions, all while practicing their vital measurement skills, developing 21st-century skills, communicating, and designing.

This PBL is self-differentiating, meaning that students have the ability to work at their own pace and go as deep as they would like to with their learning.
