This Fast Finishers measurement project focuses on calculating area through designing a posh pet retreat, with two picky owners that have very specific needs for their new business. Students will design floor plans that incorporate all of the demands. This project is designed for advanced students who might need a project to work on when they finish their classroom work early—with little to no instruction needed from the teacher.
Included are four extension ideas to do after students finish!
I use this activity with my GT third grade students, but it could also be used as more of a review project for fourth grade.
