This unit builds on the Discovering Architecture unit by giving students the opportunity to take their floor plans and turn them into scaled models. Students estimate the cost of construction, learn about permits, calculate mortgage, and build a model of their floor plans. Class models can be combined to create a neighborhood and students can add landscaping and roads.
