Product Description
Your students will be excited for this “gold medal standard” project-based math, design, and economics activity. It’s appropriate and adaptable for 4th – 8th grade. It has been a staple for my 4th grade gifted and talented math group since 2013.

You won’t be the sage on the stage. Students will problem-solve their way through the project working in collaborative teams, and the teacher will guide, be a resource, spur discussion, play devil’s advocate, and provide mini lessons when necessary.

In this lesson, student collaborative teams design T-shirts, survey their peers about the designs, and set a price for their products. Our authentic audience includes students from other grades or classes actually “purchasing” the T-shirts. Providing an additional layer of data and complexity, the class collaborates to analyze the purchase history to gather “buying habits” data.

This lesson provides depth and a practical application, real world problems, and authentic audiences to grade seven Common Core Standard HSS-MD.B.7. As such, it serves as an excellent challenge for 4th, 5th and 6th grade students and a solid review/extension for 8th grade.
