This project is prepared with four lesson plans: Scaled Floor
Plans, Wall Framing Detail, Roof Framing Detail, and Exterior Wall
Materials and Finish Roof Materials.

This project can be used as an end of semester project or it can
be used concurrently with the lesson plans as they are implemented.
This project was developed for a particular Block Schedule, but the
time is broken down for all teachers to modify and use. This
project is very versatile as it has accommodations built in for
Special Education and ESL Students. What makes this project special
is that the students "build" the house that they live in.

Scaled Floor Plan Drawing

Students will draw to scale, using a 1/4 inch equals one foot,
the floor plan of the home in which they are living. They will
correctly use a tape measure, locate all doors and windows in their
exact locations, list the dimensions of all doors and 
windows, list the dimensions of length and width of all rooms
exactly, and correctly spell the names of all rooms.
