An engaging way challenge students to apply their knowledge of area and perimeter. Can be used as a project or performance assessment during a measurement or geometry unit.
Students get to design a building of their choosing. My class made everything from houses to shopping malls to soccer stadiums. They'll use multiplication and measurement skills to create a key, draw the rooms to scale, label the sides, and give the area and perimeter of each room.
Includes directions, example of each step, chart for students to complete, and a rubric for grading.
