Project Based Learning in Ms. Baran's Class

In Miss Baran's class students have been learning a lot about multiplication and why math is so important in our everyday life.  To help students make real world connections they are taking part in a PBL (project based learning) activity for the next 2 days related to Thanksgiving.  Students will have to create a guest list, calculate servings needed, plan out a Thanksgiving meal, calculate the cost for each item needed, and calculate their total cost.  In order to calculate all of their prices and total amounts students will have to use addition, rounding, and multiplication.  Students are already having a blast working on this activity and realizing how important math really is to our everyday lives!
