This 5-day project-based math resource applies math concepts in a real-world scenario to teach students about long division with one-digit divisors (with and without remainders). In this 5-day unit, students will divide whole numbers of up to 4 digits by a one-digit number to design a flower shop. This division math project is engaging and authentic. Plus, it’s available as both a digital and print resource.


This project-based math resource covers concepts of long division and is aligned with the following 4th Grade Math Common Core State Standards:



Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.


This resource is available in both Printable & Digital Google Slides versions.
