A 5 part, 10-hour lesson series that integrate Mathematics, English Language Arts, Geography, Creative Arts and Technology. In these lessons, learners are guided through the process of planning their dream house and ultimately building a part of it in a 3D model. The series incorporates auditory, visual and kinesthetic learning opportunities so that there is something that will appeal to all learners. Along with the lesson resources are suggestions for teaching, additional online resources and ideas for extension.
Learners will be actively engaged in these fun lessons that appeal to every child’s sense of fantasy while learning valuable skills such as writing descriptive essays, planning, building 3D models and working with scale.
While these lessons are aimed at a Grade 5 level, they could very easily be adapted for a Grade 4 – 6 level.
