Here are some project based learning activities that would be appropriate for grades 3-5. I have broken the PowerPoints into days and pacing when you scroll them. Students can work on these independently, with support, or you can do it as a family!
Passion Project/Genius Hour
Create your Own Animal!
Students will research two animals and then combine the characteristics from these animals to create their own animal!
Students will work on writing an informative essay. They will write 5 paragraphs for each animal and the new animal they create!
Students should draw what their new animal looks like!
Adapted from Teaching with a Mountain View
Students will create their own resort. They will be focusing primarily on multiplication. Especially 2 digit by 2 digit and even 3 or 4 digit numbers by 2 digit.
Utah Road Trip
On this adventure students will plan their own road trip across Utah! They will write about what they are seeing on their adventure. They will keep track of their expenses and see how many miles they have traveled! We have many beautiful wonders here in Utah it is fun to see what students pickt o visit!
