I created this project as a summative assessment for my grade seven students at the end of our Geometry unit.
Students take on the role of a landscape engineer to build a quote for the landscaping of the backyard of a mansion. Students follow guidelines from the mansion owner, and use a blueprint (provided) to build the quote for the client.
- area of rectangles, triangles, hexagons, circles, half-circles
- volume of cylinder
- decimal operations - calculating cost (rounded to the hundredths place)
Download contains 3 files - project, blueprint, & answer key/credits page
- Your students will only require the project & blueprint pages.
There is no clipart included in the project, other than the cover page, so it will be suitable for upper grades.
Suitable for grade 6 (enrichment), grade 7 or grade 8.
No prep needed - just copy and hand out.
