This little challenge is such a hit with students! They love to design those giant homes with extra rooms and spaces to fill with unusual themes. Basketball court beside your kitchen? Why not! In this Quick Challenge, students will design the floor plan for the home of their dreams.

Note: This quick challenge is available as part of a money-saving bundle:

What is the challenge?

For this activity, students will work individually to draw the design for the floor plan of their dream home. There are some specific directions to follow and certain rooms that are required. Students can also add their own fantastic rooms - as long as they still remain within the task constraints. As they complete the design students will also note the area of each room and finally the total area of the whole house. We used a calculation for square units to determine the cost of the house, too!

The package specifically contains:

  • Cover sheet
  • 4-page Step-by-Step Teacher’s Guide - including a full page of extra tips!
  • 4-page Step-by-Step Student sheets (that you can project)
  • Area Chart Worksheet
  • Grid paper
  • 2 pages of photos with more tips
  • Terms of Use
  • The student worksheet is editable!

Simple teacher procedures and tons of tips are included. Just talk about the task, share some basic directions (using the provided lesson guide and sheets to project) and let them get busy planning, designing, and learning!

Your students will love designing their dream homes!!
