Product Description
Use this lesson plan to extend your students' understanding of area and perimeter while turning these concepts into authentic experiences. Students are asked to plan to build a dream home. They will draw it, calculate the floor area, total lot area, and structural perimeter. The students will complete this project by completing a Builder's Application that requires the students to state all of their calculations, and extend their thinking to the practical side of construction and housing by answering questions like: What possible issues could come from building at this location? What plans would be made in case of a natural disaster?

Teach across different subjects with this project while ensuring your students can calculate and find the area and perimeter of different shapes. Instruct high ability students to plan their dream homes using 3-D shapes and see how much more in depth your students can go with these concepts.
