Product Description

This is a great way to review key standards right before the state test, or to wrap up the year! This 10 day unit puts student in cooperative groups to design a summer camp. They will use their skills in measuring volume, adding, subtracting and multiplying decimals and using fractions to create a schedule, plan meals and activities, and design a camp space. The tasks are real-world, and require students to use the mathematical practices as they navigate the tasks. Your students will love this fun way to practice their math skills!

This unit includes:

1. An introduction to set the stage for the students.

2. Teaching suggestions for using the unit effectively.

3. Percy's Pool Palace - using volume to choose a swimming pool.

4. Meal planning and scheduling activities that use decimals and fractions.

5. A student self-assessment rubric for the mathematical practices.

6. An answer key for Percy's Pool Party

7. Samples and models for other, open-ended tasks

Everything you need - just print and teach!
