Engage students with this estimating area practice activity where students design their own house & furniture layout then determine the area by counting squares and partial squares. Students will also answer critical thinking questions related to both estimating and finding area, and finding perimeter. $

Decimals, Area, Perimeter, and a side Guacamole! This PBL lets students start up their own Taco Truck business. They'll make the menu, decide on prices, and build a truck to create an unbelievable combo platter of math and real-world skills. Taking taco orders is even on the menu. A project based learning activity like this pushes kids to be creative while applying multiple skills (math, problem solving, collaboration). Engage and motivate while making tacos! $
