Can you tell me the scale that you used to produce the floor plan?
Thank you,

Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 29, 2014Lisa Tilmon answered:
Each team of 3-4 students were assigned a bedroom in the house to make a scale drawing including furniture. Each team decided their scale according to the dimensions of their rooms and the poster paper dimensions they were using for display. I didn't give them a scale, but I did prompt discussion to teams her were struggling with a reasonable approach to determine a potential scale. If that doesn't answer your question, please contact me via email at lisatilmon@hotmail.com to clarify. Thanks!

Hello, I just bought this product but I am a little confused on how to use the pgs with the floor plan. There are no explanations that come with you product.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 2, 2014Lisa Tilmon answered:
The floor plans (in conjunction with the furniture pages) are to be used with the Scale Drawings activity on page 31. Multiple floor plans are provided in this product for scaffolding or you can opt to give the same floor plan to each team of four students...your choice. I hope this helps! If you have further questions, feel free to contact me via email (lisatilmon@hotmail.com).
On  October 8, 2013Prince's Products 4 the Middle (TpT Seller) asked:
I purchased your Scale drawing activity and I thought it looked great and was very excited until I found 15 slides were copied exactly from a resource book I was using. I would like my money back.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 8, 2013Lisa Tilmon answered:
I understand that you have no need to pay for something of which you already have access. Although this is my original work and I can't explain its contents being included in a resource book, I will certainly forward your concern to TpT to manage the refund.

I have seen several teachers with the graphics style used in your activities. The graphics are so exciting and fun and I love the fonts used too. Is this a specific program? I am not familiar with this.

I use PowerPoint to create my activities and purchase the majority of my graphics from Kristen McGrath at KPM Doodles. Enjoy!
