Project Description:
During this project based learning (PBL) unit, your students will compete in a contest to be the next star of a new hit show, The Time Of Your Life. Each contestant must come up with a schedule for the birthday of their dreams. The lucky winner will get to star in their very own episode of The Time Of Your Life and do every activity planned on his/her birthday schedule. Here are the steps your students will take as they work towards becoming the next star:

• Apply knowledge of a.m. and p.m. hours to brainstorm activities for the birthday of their dreams
• Apply knowledge of duration of time and show the start time and end time of each scheduled activity on analog clocks and in digital/standard form
• Create a day-long birthday schedule with no time gaps
• Design a storyboard that features each activity from their dream birthday schedule
o Set the scene with a narrative introduction
o Use narrative transitions to show time progression from one activity to the next
o Wrap up their birthday story with a narrative conclusion
• Write a cover letter and attach it to their submission packet for the contest
• Complete a self-assessment of their project using a three-part rubric
• Assemble their packet according to very specific visual instructions

Complete Student Independence = Maximized Learning:
The beauty of this in-depth project based learning (PBL) unit is that your students will complete every one of the steps listed above independently. The detailed visuals and step-by-step instructions featured in this D.I.Y. Project Guide eliminate the need for daily guided PBL lessons.

The only instructional time you need to contribute is a 10 minute mini-lesson on the day you launch your unit. After that, your students will be off on an independent project based learning (PBL) adventure that will last for days.

This project based learning resource if perfect math enrichment for advanced learners or center work for early finishers.

All About D.I.Y. Project Guides by Core Inspiration:

Love Project Based Learning (PBL)…but crunched for instructional time?

Most teachers get a hint of anxiety that sneaks in every time we think of tackling project based learning (PBL). It’s totally normal. You are only one person and it’s crazy challenging to guide one math group through an entire project based learning experience while delivering quality instruction and formative assessments to all the learners who have not yet mastered the topic at hand.

During your unit on telling time…things are going to be different.

Let your students take the wheel with the D.I.Y. Project Guide.

What makes this D.I.Y. Project Guide different from other PBL resources?

The secret ingredient to this ideal PBL resource is that it was designed with student independence in mind.

Every step of this PBL experience is outlined to a T with clear visuals and step-by-step instructions. Rubrics and reminders to reach higher will encourage your advanced learners to challenge themselves throughout the entire project, allowing you to rest easy and focus on instructing students who still need instruction on telling time, as you advanced learners plug away on their PBL adventure.

Your advanced learners are going to practice the analysis and application skills they need. You can focus your brain power on planning lessons for the learners who need more direct instruction and guided practice. Finally project based learning is possible!
