Product Details

This project-based learning bundle for 5th grade math integrates the standards + Mathematical Practices. These 11 projects will help you teach or review geometry, measurement, decimals, fractions, and much more!

Common Questions:

Why do I need 11 projects?
Each project uses math in a real-life scenario. Some projects are seasonal, while others can be used at any time in the year. Having all of these projects gives you the opportunity to do PBL in math all year long! And yes, I've had many teachers use every single project in one year. Once they do one, their students ask for more!

Do I need to teach standards before I start this?
PBL is a fantastic way to show students the relationships between standards and real life. You don't need to wait until your standards have been taught! Most teachers incorporate mini-lessons and small group while using these projects to teach their math standards.

How long do these projects take?
It really depends on how far you take the scenarios. Some teachers like to bring in guest speakers and other enrichment opportunities during the project. If you're just doing the included activities, it will take about a week for one project. If you add other experiences, the project will take 2-3 weeks.


This includes *ELEVEN* of my popular Project-Based Learning activities, discounted when you buy as a set! THE TOTAL VALUE OF THIS BUNDLE IS $55!

All of my PBLs come with e-mail support. Read the feedback below to see what it's all about!
