Math is best learned in real life situations. This project puts students into the real life situation of building a new school. While working on problem solving and creative thinking, students also work on measurement: including area and perimeter. A simple grading rubric has been built in to give students guidance and feedback. This project has two versions - metric measurement with meters and centimeters and customary measurement with feet and inches. I have provided centimeter and inch "graph paper" which can be printed and used with the project. Working as individuals, or as groups, this project is sure to get students' minds working.

This project is available in a printable version and a Google Classroom version. The Google Classroom Version includes a Google Slides project sheet with graph paper that can be drawn on using the Google Slide drawing tools

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.
Measure areas by counting unit squares (square cm, square m, square in, square ft, and improvised units).
Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.
Solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons, including finding the perimeter given the side lengths, finding an unknown side length, and exhibiting rectangles with the same perimeter and different areas or with the same area and different perimeters.
Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.
