A home building nonprofit organization (e.g. Habitat for Humanity) is requesting home design submissions for their work in the local community and across the country. Students will explore area and volume of 2D and 3D figures and unit conversions as they design their perfect home. Students will demonstrate their understanding by communicating accountable content through the design requirement of a technical drawing with labels, measurements, and size calculations.
"Using PBL in my classroom allows me to encourage my students to trust themselves, question what they think they know, and discover new material without relying on information from me to move them along." - Kimberly Campbell
