In my 6th grade math class we are currently working on a math project where students are to create a Taco Food Truck. Run A Taco Truck is a project based learning activity that puts all the job responsibilities in the hands of the students. This project based learning activity focuses on pushing students to create and design while using math skills, applying problem solving techniques, and collaborating with others. As an extension to our project and to celebrate Cinco De Mayo we had a Taco Party. This party gave students the chance to develop ideas, relationships with their peers, and learn about the Mexican Holiday. It is important for me to have students experience different cultures.
