I created this activity for my students to do over a holiday break, but I never gave it to them. The students take a room in their home and create a scale drawing of it. They can choose their own scale and draw furniture in the drawing.
As an added geometry bonus, they also need to calculate the perimeter and area of the room.
But, hey, if you don't want to send it home with them, use it in the classroom to diagram the classroom...or even a different room in the building!
A grading rubric is provided for correct usage of the scale, neatness of the drawing, and correct calculations of perimeter and area. A 1/4-in gridded space is also included.
If you use this, please tell me how it goes!
