Students will enjoy this real-world project where they are asked to create a proposal for a custom backyard for Mr. and Mrs. Green. Students are given specifics on what the Greens would like for their new backyard as well as a budget. They are required to create a scaled drawing of the layout, show calculations for pricing every item in the backyard and will create a presentation to present their proposal. This bundle also includes a rubric for scoring the final product.
This project will help students collaborate, develop 21st century skills, and assess their geometry skills on area, surface area, and geometry.
If possible, an added bonus to this wonderful project might be to get some local landscape designers to observe and give feedback on the student's presentations!
