Are you looking for a way to reinforce basic addition and subtraction concepts in an engaging way that helps your students make connections? “The Camping Trip” is a real-life math project where students will complete TEN different addition/subtraction tasks. This project will help your students see how addition and subtraction is used in real life. All addition and subtraction is within 100.

You might choose to print specific tasks to use during Math centers, or you might make a booklet out of all ten tasks and let your students choose which one to do when. The choice is yours.

Take a look at what you’ll find inside this math project:

TASK #1: CAMPING SUPPLIES

Your family has decided to start camping! But first you’ll need to buy some supplies! You already have a tent, but you have $75 to spend on other supplies. Decide which supplies you will purchase with your $75.

TASK#2: CAMPSITE PLANNING

Altogether there are six families coming on your camping trip! Let’s figure out the best group camping site for everyone. Then work with campsite costs.

TASK#3: GROCERY SHOPPING

You’re in charge of grocery shopping for your family. Use your budget to decide what you will buy. Figure out the total amount.

TASK #4: SETTING UP THE SITE

You’ve arrived at the campground and now it’s time to set up your campsite! Figure out how long it will take to set up. Can you complete all of the set up within the hour? Then you’ll need to haul firewood.

TASK #5: S’MORES

It’s not a bonfire without s’mores! Crack the code to reveal the instructions for making a s’more!

TASK #6: TIME FOR GAMES

There are lots of outdoor games to play while you are camping. You and a few of the others set up three different games to play.Use the data from each game to answer the questions

TASK #7: CANOE RENTALS

It’s a beautiful day so you decide to go canoeing! Let’s go to the local canoe rental shop! Work out the cost of canoes, lifejackets, and other supplies for each family.

TASK #8: GOING FOR A HIKE

The campground has a popular hiking trail. Everyone decides to go on a group hike. Use the map to answer the questions.

TASK #9: BIRD WATCHING

As you hike, you decide to graph all of the different birds that you see. Interpret the data from the graph.

TASK #10: GOING FOR ICE CREAM

After the hike you’re starving! Let’s go to the campground ice cream shop! Figure out the total cost.

HOW TO USE MATH PROJECTS IN YOUR CLASSROOM:

Math projects are an ideal way to consolidate learning. I recommend using them as an engaging activity AFTER skills have been learned rather than during learning. You will likely find that engagement is very high and that your students ask to do more of these!

There are many ways to use math projects in your classroom. Some of the most popular are:

•a small-group or pairs activity

•a guided math activity to allow you to see where your students are struggling

•a fun, rewarding way to engage your early finishers

•a low-prep, easy-to-implement activity for a substitute teacher

Enjoy!
