Product Description
This is a five-page packet that provides detailed instructions for the world cultures theme park project. In this project, students will apply information they know about world cultures and then create a theme park reflecting those cultures in a unique, fun way.

I use it to reinforce students' knowledge about world cultures and to brush up on their mapmaking skills.

This would also make an excellent project to leave with a substitute teacher, as I have provided very detailed instructions that are easy to follow.

This project encourages creativity and critical thinking. You might consider using it as an alternative to a test or an essay.

Students will create a theme park that demonstrates their acquired knowledge of a nation's culture, while also demonstrating an ability to accurately create and label a map. You can adapt this assignment to fit any culture (or cultures) that you have taught.

One year I asked students to design their park solely around French culture. Another year, students created a park that represented four cultures -- Japan, Mexico, Italy, and Egypt -- across all four corners of the park. My advice: make this project your own.

Included, please find a VERY detailed lesson plan along with a student checklist/handout, and a rubric for evaluating the project. This is a "can't miss' lesson!
