Present the idea of houses and buildings and where they start - a floor plan.

Have students create a basic one room floor plan using graph paper to start the project.

Once students understand, begin the project with a fresh piece of graph paper and then have them try to create a floor plan to their own home!

Attached is a getting started paper for the students, a to do list, a list of questions related to their design, and a for sale listing.

After students are done creating, designing, and drawing their floor plan, have them follow the to do list to draw a picture and then create a for sale posting.

Lastly, you could have students write a persuasive essay to really push the need to sell their floor plan to a customer!

If you are up for it, have students try to create a 3D model of their design using Legos, Minecraft, or any other sort of idea you may have!

Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths π’ and π£ + π€ is the sum of π’ Γ π£ and π’ Γ π€. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
Multiply side lengths to find areas of rectangles with whole-number side lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems, and represent whole-number products as rectangular areas in mathematical reasoning.
Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.
