This project combines the third grade standards for rocks, weathering & erosion, geography and math.
Students get to "travel" along to different famous U.S. rock monuments and decide weather they were man-made or natural sites. It comes with a separate document with websites where students can explore the monuments to investigate whether they are natural or man-made.
Then they must use rounding and addition skills to figure out the total distance they traveled.
The file contains a more challenging version as well where students learn to use a map scale to convert the inches to miles traveled before they round and add.
Last, when they are done, it has them answer geography questions as well.
The document is a Word File so you can edit as needed.
