Using Area as an Architect (Stations Day 1)

Unit 14: Area and Perimeter
Lesson 3 of 8

Objective: SWBAT develop their understanding of area through developing floor plans for an orphanage in the DR Congo and a tiny restaurant for a refugee family in Kampala, Uganda. They support both of these goals with student centered fundraising. Note: Activity works with other floor plans as well - orphanage does not have to be the them!

Big Idea: In this multi-day activity, students make 3 different models of an orphanage floor plan using Google Drawing, Virtual Graphpaper, and a construction of rectilinear shapes, to calculate the area of each room using units square.
