This product is an opportunity for your students to put their multiplication, adding, subtraction and decision making to good use. As well as extending S.S. standards. Students will complete 8 tasks to plan their exploration They will have to determine what country they will be a crew member for, what items they will need during exploration, and in the end, students will figure out how much money they would make on the voyage. Each number is rounded to the whole number since my students have not learned about decimals this year. This project based learning project will allow students to use what they learned and apply it to real life situations. After the they are finished determining how much money they will make, students will have to write a 5 paragraph essay explaining their choices, what area they explored (S.S. standard), and how they feel about a crew members life.
