Amusement Park Math Freebie

Well here goes nothing! My first time joining in on Classroom Freebies Manic Mondays and Freebie Fridays.  I am so excited and hoping that everyone enjoys my freebie.

I don't know about some of you, but after teaching the same grade level for 6 years straight I felt that I needed to change some things up.  I needed to incorporate some new ideas and projects not only to engage the students more, but to help get me excited about lessons too!  This project was inspired by a problem in our math book.

So here it is! Amusement Park Graphing!  Every year that I have done this my students have totally enjoyed it.  It's a great activity to do before Open House and makes an awesome bulletin board display as well.

Here are some of the items the packet includes:
-A writing activity about their amusement park
-Drawing a map of the amusement park
-Plotting the points (ordered pairs) for their attractions

Click on the picture or HERE to be taken to the Google Doc where you can download the packet for free.  :)

If you liked the activity please let me know! :)
