Product Description
Technology, CTE and Engineering classes are gaining in popularity at the middle school level. This fun exploration of Architecture is perfect for grades 6-8 to learn history, design and explore careers in this field through a variety of computer based projects.

Included in this Unit:
1.Teacher & Student Resources
2.Architect Research Project (PowerPoint) Expectations
3.“Tiny House” Research & Design Project (Sketch Up) Expectations
4.Careers in Architecture Project (MS Publisher) Expectations

Students start by researching some of the influential architects and create a PowerPoint to showcase their information. Next, they research and design a "tiny house" utilizing Sketchup (free software) to learn the basics of CAD while letting their creativity and problem solving skills help them design a beautiful, yet functional small living space. Finally, students explore careers in the field to learn more about different architectural jobs of interest and present their findings in a MS Publisher newsletter.

My 8th graders loved these assignments and created some amazingly creative products! I hope your students will enjoy it too!
