Let’s Plan a Vacation- Math Project

So it’s finally the end of the year! We have learned all the standards and now we need to figure out what we are going to do with the kids to keep them engaged. Well let’s plan a vacation. This  math project is a great cooperate activity to get your kids excited about doing math at the end of the year.

plan a vacation How it Works

This math activity is great to do in groups of 3 to 4 kids. A group of students will get a city and a budget sheet to plan a vacation for themselves and a friend. They must pick their flight, car rental, hotel, activities, and food while they are on vacation. They must do it all the activities while staying under their budget of $2500. I love seeing all the kids working together. I give each child a job. There is a mathematician that does the calculating, the recorder that writes on the budget sheet, and the checker that checks all the calculations.

vacationMy students really enjoyed this activity. We spent 2 class periods working on the budget. I am attaching a sample of the project. You can try it out by clicking on the picture below.
