This is a great assignment for reinforcing the concepts of perimeter and area. Students design a floor plan of their dream home and complete scaffolded tasks about the rooms' areas and perimeters. Students are also required to estimate measurements of objects.
There is a second version appropriate for higher grades or students that need a challenge. This version allows students to work with triangles, and requires them to find the area of triangles as well as use Pythagorean Theorem to solve for the hypotenuse of triangles.
Marking sheet included.
There are 5 tasks to be completed of varying difficulty.
