Product Description
This is one of my all-time favorite end-of-the-year (or, any time of year, really!!) projects for upper elementary students! There is lots of great math involved (multiplication, calculating area and perimeter, and more!), as well as art and writing. And the “theme park” focus is perfect for the time of year.

This project can be as involved as you need it to be. For example, some years my students have had two days to complete it, and other years they’ve had two weeks! It’s up to you how many of the “extras” you want to incorporate.

I have included both color and BW versions for easy printing!

*****************************************************************************

Make this project even more exciting by grabbing a copy of The Theme Park Project: 3D Expansion Pack! Now you can take the project one step further and make it 3D! This expansion pack works with the original resource and will allow your architects to add some fun dimension to their projects, turning them into creative works of art.

*****************************************************************************

In this download, you will find the following:

• Two versions of the “Theme Park Project” where students design a theme park and create a scale drawing of their park.

*PROJECT A - Students will calculate the area and perimeter of the rides and attractions located within their theme park.

*PROJECT B (more challenging) - Students will calculate the area and perimeter of the rides and attractions located within their theme park, AS WELL AS calculate the cost of the concrete pads and fencing for the rides.

• EXTRA: Students can create drawings of their rides and attractions (they can complete just a few, or you can have them create a drawing for everything in their park!! Again, this depends on your time frame!)

• EXTRA: Students can write a persuasive business letter to the creators of the park encouraging them to select their park design.

• EXTRA: students can make a brochure advertising their awesome theme park

*****************************************************************************

PLEASE NOTE: Students will need to be able to calculate the area and perimeter of rectangles to complete this project!!
