Students will create a blueprint for a one-story, three bedroom, two bathroom home. They will then use their area, perimeter, and personal financial literacy skills to make decisions on the building materials they want to use for the construction of their home. They will calculate cost using area and perimeter, while staying within a given budget.
For their final projects, students will use the 5D Planner- Home Design App to make a 3D model of their home. We have this on school devices, and would appreciate it if you could download it on your child's iPad, as well.
This is a very exciting project, where students will apply the skills they have worked on all year long in a new context!
Here is an example of what your child's home blueprint may look like:
