Design a Dream House AND Room - HomeworkProject + Class Activity!

Design a Dream House AND Room - HomeworkProject + Class Activity!

Ask your children to design a dream house for a spaceman, a teacher, a pet etc. This can be a weekend homework project or class-based activity. My students loved this activity (and most of the parents did too) and it created lots of descriptive writing opportunities. My class also designed and made one of the rooms in their dream house using 'doll-sized' pieces of furniture (great DT project). Enjoy!

Design a Low Energy Bedroom

Design a Low Energy Bedroom

In this lesson, students design a bedroom that has a range of creative energy saving features. Students will imagine what their ultimate bedroom of the future might look like then work on a design for this bedroom with modifications that make it as low energy as possible. Your class will explore needs or opportunities for designing, and the technologies needed to realise designed solutions. Students will generate, develop and record design ideas through describing, drawing and modelling. They will be able to identify energy inefficiencies in an everyday setting, then design options for reduction of energy use at home. By the end of the lesson, students will be able to communicate their design ideas with their peers and give constructive feedback.

Full project booklet to accompany a construction project to make Tudor houses. The comprehensive booklet takes the children through the design process. Projects asks the children to make wooden Tudor houses.

The booklet includes a comprehension about Tudor houses. Research pages about models of Tudor houses, 45 and 90 degree corners, joining wood, design brief, concept and final designs, safety, evaluation during and after making and more!
