Give students the opportunity to design their DREAM ROOM while learning about Area, Perimeter, and the real life skill of balancing a checkbook! Students will learn about Area and Perimeter using the interactive notebook pages and visual included in this resource before beginning the project. The students will then be presented with the task of designing their own room where their excitement will run wild! They will be given the opportunity to measure the dimensions of their own bedroom, shop online or within catalogs for furniture and decor, document the area and perimeter of the items they want to purchase, and use the budget log to balance their checkbook.

Cross Curricular Option: Have students write a persuasive letter to their parent(s) to convince them why their dream room should become a reality!

Included in this resource:

• Teacher Directions
• Task Statement (to be given to students)
• Area/Perimeter visual (to be given to students as a reference)
