This is a project I have done with students for several years. They are practicing basic math facts and also employing some very creative thinking as they try to plan their trip. I have never had a problem keeping kids on task with this project because they love challenge of trying to make it back with the most money.
I've left this as a word document so that it is fully editable. You many want to have students plan a trip to another city that is closer (or farther away) from where you live.
You will receive:
Teacher Notes that briefly explain some of how I ran the project
A starter page with the rules and some questions to get students started
An Itinerary Page for students to log their stops
A Money Ledger Page for students to keep track of their expenses
A short answer page
