Product Description
Let's create and build a house!

One of my favorite things about teaching is showing my students how what we cover in class is used the real world-other than word problems. Scales and ratios naturally lend themselves to architecture and this project gives your students a great avenue to apply math while being creative. Can you say STEAM?!?!

Suggestions:
Restrict building to one-story houses (for the sanity of all)
Build in check-points to avoid the night before crazy. This also allows you as the teacher to make sure students are on track. What I used in below.
I also found having one workday in class allowed time for students to share strategies in building
Make students do a sketch (on graph paper) in pencil and then outlined in pen. I would recommend limiting the size of the paper. You can photocopy their scale drawing and they can build directly on that!
Cotton balls in nail polish remover gets glue/hot glue off quickly
Incorporate what students are reading in English (recreate the town of Maycomb, Alabama from To Kill a Mockingbird) or take a nod from History and have students create their version of an English home from the 1800s.
Give students a day to share their buildings/houses – they will want to share their hard work!
Be flexible – adjust as you need!
