This project covers a range of concepts (area, perimeter, volume, multiplication, money, design, location and shape).

Students are tasked with designing a zoo. They must complete a range of tasks, for example:

  • Create a map of their zoo
  • Create nets and construct a 3D model of their zoo
  • Find the area, perimeter and volume of each enclosure
  • Calculate the cost of building a fence for each enclosure
  • Give directions to get around the zoo
  • Design a logo, entry ticket and zoo keeper uniform

Bike Ride using Cartesian Plane

Have students map out a bike ride that goes for a specific distance (e.g. – 5km).

Additional activities:

  • Listing coordinates of intersections and landmarks
  • Writing directions
  • Calculating the time it would take to complete the bike ride, allowing for walking across roads
  • Investigating height of terrain to see vertical meters covered
  • Measure the angle of turns made

Challenges could also be made as to how much distance is covered in a particular quadrant.
