Need a project for your fast finishers? Send them to Mr. Tiddlebug, who is an elderly gentleman looking to build a retirement home for himself and his dog. This project focuses on area on a smaller scale, and lasts only a couple of days, depending on how much time students have to work.
Extend the activity by having students actually build their house plans!
Students will need graph paper to complete this project. They may also need a computer, if they wish to print out pictures of furniture to glue onto their floor plans.
