This activity is appropriate for middle school students. They are asked to create a dream home for a family of three. They are given specific things to include to meet the families requirements. This resource includes the directions, rubric, and self-evaluation rubric. The students are asked to use grid paper. We used 1/4 inch grid paper. The students are practicing decomposing and composing different polygons to find the area of each room along with the area of the entire floor plan. The students are also asked to find the perimeter, too.
