First students shared their scavenger hunts and compared answers. Then we checked them together and discuss the final questions in the slideshow. Next I modeled how to measure and construct the walls for their model homes and students completed their own walls. At this point, it was back to Architecture where they used their architectural glossary and a Google Slide Show to learn more about architecture terms. Then it was back to From the Ground up to create their doors and any other architectural features they chose to include on their walls before gluing the walls to the foundation. More "minis" and landscaping were done as well. Finally we returned to Architecture to talk about the homework assignments...two required and one optional
1. Create your "cheat sheet" of architecture terms. Students should reread their glossaries and draw a picture or write a short phrase that helps them remember the terms on the new handout.
2. Draw a house that incorporates at least 10 architectural features from the glossary. This might be funny or it might look real. The important part is putting the features where they go on a house.
3. Optional: Architecture Bingo/Scavenger Hunt: this is for in the neighborhood and in the car. Students document where they see features and try to get Bingo!
We ended our day in Bridges. Students shared their paragraphs from homework and we began job training. We will pick up here next week!
