Travel the World in Your Classroom! (End of the Year Fun with a Personal Passport)

My 4th and 5th graders loooved this activity so much! I listed the directions & skills (on the Smartboard) for each to work on at their own pace. I was there to help, when needed, though.

When a student finished his task, he came to passport control (me!) and I checked his work. If it was correct, I stamped his passport and gave him a new page (country/”task”).

If the student came to passport control without his passport, then he had to sit in jail (haha!) for crossing the border without proper documentation! He could only come out of jail after answering 5 Math facts! It took 3 days (45 min/day) for all tasks (in these pictures) to be completed. (10 students-Remedial-Special Ed.-Math, Language, Gr.4&5)

Here are some completed images. I made the passport cover with simple clipart images.

            

I just completed another successful year of this project with my 5th grade students! When the they visited each country and completed each task successfully….they earned a stamp and then a prize when they returned back to America!

They Learned Perimeter without Worksheets!

Perimeter is the space around a shape or room. We used cm cubes to measure a rectangle with the following dimensions= length 7, height 6. Students learned how to double each side, add them up, then add those numbers up to find the final answer. This was a fun math day!!
