DESIGN YOUR OWN TREE HOUSE
In this challenging CC aligned topic , students will be designing and building the perfect tree house. Because it is a fantasy tree house students can dream big. Make it really special with cool rooms, a fancy stairway, electricity, and in a special tree. They can build it in their backyard, in the woods, at their vacation house, in the mountains, at a friends house, or any place where they would most like to have a tree house.
Students will draw a floor plan and a picture of their tree house and write a story to explain how they were able to build their treehouse. They will pre-write, write a rough draft, edit, and turn in a final, student graded, story with a floor plan and picture.
