This activity is designed to reinforce measurement and drawing skills. In addition students have to follow directions, draw straight lines and pay attention to make this project work. Students convert the measurements of a simulated house (in imperial units) into a floor plan using a scale factor (in metrics). This was designed primary for American students who understand the concept of a "Foot" but struggle with measuring in metric. Students then follow a specific set of directions to place rooms throughout the house. By following the directions and carefully drawing, students create a simple floor plan for a one-story house. This activity quietly engages students for the course of a class period and easily leads to further investigation.
