The end of the year has come, and if your students are like mine, they are ready for some FUN! ... but learning is not over! Let your students use their ambition to get ready for summer with a math activity (aligned with the common core).
The students will be required to use their math knowledge about graphing, equations, tips/tax, budgeting, and much more to plan their summer "stay"cation. They will calculate their budget and do research to formulate a plan for a one day vacation within one hour of their home.
This project has step by step directions, so they should be able to independently complete all the research and calculations needed to successfully finish this activity. You may even have a little time to finish some last minute grading while students are at work!
Have fun and ENJOY! Please leave a comment and/or suggestions :)
