HOUSE DESIGN

A Simulation of Student Teams Designing Houses for Clients

From mansions to townhouses, architecture is in the works! Students build an understanding of the problems and pleasures of designing a house by learning the different types and necessary elements of house design, the correlation between income and mortgage eligibility, and the costs of house construction and home furnishings. Some of the activities include evaluating the pros and cons of building single-family homes, calculating the number of square feet in a given area, and designing and drawing specific floor plans. The simulation has three phases and a culmination that can be adapted to fit your students' needs. Grades 4–8. Interact. ©2002.
