Your students have decided to go on a camping trip! They will use real-life math skills to plan, design, and explore on their trip.
This PBL (Project-Based Learning) project is perfect for second graders or early third graders. It can be used as a review of math skills learned throughout the year. Your kiddos will need to apply the following math skills in order to have a successful hiking trip:
- Telling Time
- Graphing- tally tables, pictographs & bar graphs
- Line Plots
- Measurement (inches)
- Understanding direction
Creating a park map
Brainstorming and planning out camping essentials
Creating a camping schedule
Buying camping supplies
Designing the campground
Analyzing photos of animals and creating graphs
Measuring animals and plotting the data
Solving different camping scenarios
Writing a s’more recipe

- CCSS2.MD.A.1 – Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
- CCSS2.MD.B.5 – Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem.
- CCSS2.MD.C.7 – Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.
- CCSS2.MD.D.9 – Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
- CCSS2.MD.D.10 – Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.
- CCSS2.NBT.B.5 – Fluently add and subtract within 100 using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction.
- CCSS2.NBT.B.7 – Add and subtract within 1000, using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method. Understand that in adding or subtracting three-digit numbers, one adds or subtracts hundreds and hundreds, tens and tens, ones and ones; and sometimes it is necessary to compose or decompose tens or hundreds.
