About the Activity:
I developed this activity for my grades 4-6 gifted and talented students. One important component of our GT program is allowing students the opportunity to socialize and work with like-minded peers and this activity does just that. This project based learning activity also incorporates math through budgeting as well as language arts through informational / explanatory writing. It is an excellent opportunity for creativity in informational writing! It allows for students to be artistic and creative through hands-on building of their home and photography of their homes.
