Through an interdisciplinary integrated PBL on amusement parks, our 4th graders gain real world experience by

participating in a program to increase their understanding of economics and money systems and applied their knowledge

about supply and demand as well as profit and loss and related it to the project. In all the different subject areas students

experience and participate in different lessons all related to the amusement park. The project presents an opportunity to

build and enhance our students' cooperative learning skills.
