Your students have decided to open up their very own Restaurant Diner! They will use real-life math skills to plan, design, and manage their business.
This PBL (Project-Based Learning) project is perfect for late second graders, third graders, or early fourth graders. It can be used as a part of your economics unit or as a review of math skills learned throughout the year. Your kiddos will need to apply the following math skills in order to successfully run their diner:
- Addition (Decimals & non-decimals)
- Measurement (Area)
- Data (Graphs & Tally Tables)
- Elapsed time
Planning and designing the diner layout
Calculating employee salaries & hours worked
Calculating daily sales
Adding customer totals & change
Counting customer money
Analyzing monthly sales & graphing data
Vocabulary cards & shoe box diorama model extension activities are also included.

- CCSS3.MD.B.3 – Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
