Project Based Learning for Math and ELA. Running A Lemonade Stand!
This project integrates elements of math, ELA, technology, design, and planning into a student-made final product as they prepare to run a lemonade stand. This project at all of the preparation areas within Sales, Marketing, Organization, and Production that must be accounted for.
There are 20 ACTIVITIES
(1 page for each) for students to complete. Each page involves a problem or idea they must solve, recreate, or answer to prepare for the lemonade stand and sale.
As students work through each page, they will make their own decisions and choose the outcomes. By the end, all students will have completed the project, but each version will be based on user’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 ultimately the choice is yours (as the teacher).
There are 24 printable pages
ready to go. Hand them out one at a time or staple them all together at once. Choose whichever way works best in your classroom. I prefer back-to-back with staples on the side like a book.
