Each and every student either wishes they had their own room or that it was decorated in a way that fit their personality. Give your students a chance to renovate their room. Bring in sales flyers from the Sunday paper that have home hardware or home décor in their ad. You could also allow the students to use the internet to find images and prices of materials. Give the students graph paper to construct a layout of their room. This will be a great exercise in scale math. Tell the students that they can change their room to match their personality. They can not change the dimensions of the room, though. If they want to paint the walls they will need to figure out how much paint they will need. If they want to put a crazy rug in their room, they need to know the dimensions of the rug to ensure that it will fit. Students can add accessories (lamps, tables, lights, ceiling fans, decals, etc.) tot heir rooms, but they must keep track of all of the costs. This will help them with multiplication, addition, subtraction, and even division. The students can practice finding area and perimeter. This should be a fun and engaging lesson for your students. This is a project that they will want to do. You will not have any trouble getting students to research cost or analyzing the data. Good luck, and have fun!
