Product Description
Math topics included: area, perimeter, basic arithmetic operations, measurement

This Math activity requires students to apply their math skills -finding area and perimeter- to calculate the cost of redecorating their actual bedrooms. Redecorate Your Room is a Project Based Learning task. Other math skills are included within this project (simple arithmetic calculations, finding multiple costs, calculating tax etc.) There is a focus on nonfiction literacy skills - students are required to read building supply store flyers (either paper or online versions). They then calculate the cost of renovations (paint, flooring, baseboards, window accessories and furniture) using their actual bedroom measurements. This project creates a great learning opportunity that actually applies to real-life situations.

Included in this package are:
-graphic organizers and blackline masters for each step of the renovation
-a student reflection sheet based on the entire project (using higher level and critical thinking skills)
-extensive teacher directions
-an evaluation criteria sheet for the entire project (assessment)

This is a no prep package except for the collection of flyers from building supply stores. Students love this fun and engaging project.
