Designing Their Dream House

students thumbnail255168
Third graders in Ms. Capuana’s class at Deauville Gardens East Elementary School recently used their mathematics lessons to design their own class dream house. The class has been studying area – length x width – and brainstormed the types of rooms they would need in their dreamhouse, such as a reading room, math room, tech room, kitchen, bathroom and creativity room. The students worked in groups to create and design their dream room. They had to determine the length, width and area of their room. When all the rooms were complete, the class added all the areas together to calculate the total area of the house. They continued the activity by writing imaginative narratives about their class dream house.
