Thanksgiving Feast – Project Based Learning – 4th Grade Math – Print & Digital



Thanksgiving Feast – Project Based Learning – 4th Grade Math

⭐THANKSGIVING FEAST is a project-based learning task that involves using 4th grade math standards to plan for a Thanksgiving feast. Your students will be in charge of planning, preparing, and serving a magnificent and delicious Thanksgiving feast. This resource contains a standards-based unit in both printable PDF and Google Slides versions – so it’s the perfect activity to increase engagement and interest in any classroom. Students should determine the ingredients and baking time for dinner rolls, calculate the masses of all the ingredients to make the side dishes, bake and divide five types of pie into equal parts and compare the sizes of the different pieces of pie, use geometry, area, and perimeter to set the tables for the feast and more! Additional “challenge activities” engage students and develop further understanding of the concepts and skills.
