Back to School PBL Math Project


This back-to-school math PBL project will have your students practicing real-world math applications while having a BLAST! This project-based learning task is a great extension and enrichment activity for your early finishers at the beginning of the year. They get to plan out their school year while spiraling and practicing several math skills along the way! Students will love this fun project to refresh their math skills after a long summer off.


*This pack would be great for third and fourth-grade students, as most of these skills they've learned previously. This could also work for second-grade gifted & talented students, but they will probably need teacher assistance.


This product is DIFFERENTIATED for you and your students, and includes U.S., Australian, and Canadian versions!! It also includes both Printable & Digital Google Slides versions.
