Project based learning is happening in 3rd grade! To supplement our study of area, perimeter and geometry, the third graders are designing and building a miniature 3D version of a tiny house! The size of the houses will all be the same, but each student is creating a unique version based on their own ideas, imagination and application of skills.Third graders are responsible for designing and building a tiny house. It will include the layout, picking furniture, and using real-world math skills to finish the project. This project based learning activity focuses on the real-world application of math concepts used in building and designing homes, while practicing problem-solving skills (which are one of the most sought after skills in the workforce today), collaboration, and using their imagination. It allows for differentiation, so students can work at a pace which allows them to be most successful. Be sure to stop by the classroom to check out our tiny home prototypes!
