I've finished up with my 8th grade curriculum, and so it's time to start reviewing for our state test. With two weeks left until Spring Break, I wasn't quite ready to hit the test practice yet, and I was thrilled when I stumbled across this Water Park Project. The project allowed me to review slope, midpoints, the distance formula, proportional relationships, slope-intercept form, and solving systems of linear equations in one assignment! I've even treated the project as a real job assignment by doing "foreman checks" to see if they had met their deadlines for finishing each task.
I purchased a flip chart that was actually large sheets of graph paper from the office supply store, and the kids loved that they were like giant post-its.
We finally finished up with the final designs and reflection assignment today, so I wanted to show off their finished projects.
