This project connects area and perimeter standards with real like architecture work. Students are required to complete blueprints based on areas and perimeters of rooms in a house, as well as calculate the area and perimeter of the walls. This project is broken into three different tasks that increase in difficulty. Students can work at their own level of comfort within this project to complete some or all of the tasks. You may also alter the numbers within the project to make it easier for students who may need that differentiation.
There are different answers possible too which allows students to be more creative. You may want to have a conversation about placement of rooms in a house if you want their blueprints to be more realistic.
