Create your own amusement park! This project combines writing, geography skills, and art to help students visualize their own theme park.
This project can be used on its own or as a fun activity at the end of a unit. We incorporated this into our James and the Giant Peach novel study as a fun way to finish the unit during state tests. My students designed rides based on key moments in the novel and created their park theme based on the an aspect of the novel.
