Planning a Halloween Party Project Based Learning
Hey, y'all! Have you done any project based learning with your students yet? It's a great way to get students to APPLY what they know about different subject areas as they work towards a specific goal.
With project based learning, students may write a plan or steps in sequence, calculate the costs of something or the time needed to complete a task, determine area or use spacial awareness to map out a space, or any other number of skills.
I created this Halloween Party project for students to be able to plan their party from start to finish. It's heavy on writing and simple addition but is just right for first and second grade.
Students start out the unit by planning the date and time and making their guest lists. They also draw out where the party is going to be and make a map of the party area.
Then, students plan things like the games they are going to play, what food they'll need, what decorations they'll need, and how much everything will cost. There are cards for inspirations but students could also use grocery store or Target ads as well.
They can also make a music playlist using YouTube or other streaming services. There are also several writing pages and space for students to total the cost of the party.
It's a simple unit that makes a great option for writing centers, independent work, or fast finishers. You can check out the whole unit here.
This unit is the first in the series so be sure to follow me on TPT so you don't miss a thing. I hope you have a wonderful week and I'll talk to you soon.
