Five Wonders Theme Park: Fresh Start – Project

$1.99 or Free on Plus | 7 pages (PDF)|Grades: 4 - 6 | Starter Sheet

A project for students to use their literacy skills and creativity to rebrand Five Wonders Theme Park.

Welcome to Five Wonders Theme Park, the best theme park in the entire world!

This teaching resource is a part of our Five Wonders Theme Park Stimulus Projects. The aim of this project is for students to study Five Wonders Theme Park and its current naming conventions. Use this resource to promote the language conventions your class is currently focusing on, such as grammar, new vocabulary and phonic awareness.

The scenario for this project includes a manager who wants to rebrand Five Wonders Theme Park. You have been hired to study the theme park and rename everything. Students will need to infer and use their own interests, knowledge and ideas to create new names and themes for Five Wonders Theme Park in order to give it a new vibe.
