A project that gives students the opportunity to learn through building their own theme park.
Have you ever wanted to design your very own theme park?
This teaching resource gives students the opportunity to learn through designing their own theme park. In this project, students will need to navigate through a set budget and isometric awareness to plan and execute the best theme park they can design. Students will not only relate to the excitement of building a theme park, but also will need to think creatively to achieve a theme park people would want to visit. Students can use and purchase the theme park rides, attractions and infrastructure, or at a discounted rate, students are encouraged to design and draw their own theme park facilities using isometric paper.
In this project, students will learn about:
- measurement, including length, perimeter, area, volume and scale
- geometric isometrics
- 3D mapping
- transport maps and time
- money and budgets
- technology and design
- business concepts including needs of clientele
You can extend this project by:
- creating a competitive class environment between individuals and groups
- use currency and park features as additional rewards
- restrict the budget and charge for free items.
The learning experiences are limitless!
