Tell students that today we are going to design and build homes.
Ask students if they know what their homes are made from. Give them possible materials like wood or concrete.
Tell the students that people around the world have different kinds of houses due to the weather, climate, and living conditions of their environment.
Ask the students if they can think of any examples. If not, give them some examples.
Show the students the pictures from Houses and Homes and explain to them why the houses differ.
Ask the students what they think about the pictures. Possible questions include: Do you think that living in an igloo would be a good option in South Africa? Why do you think that Eskimos live in igloos?
Ask students why they think their homes are built the way they are.
Tell the students the names of the cities or countries these houses are in as well. If time permits, explain to them the culture of the people in the picture.
Ask students to build the type of house of their choice using blocks.
When the students are done, have them present their work one by one in front of the classroom.
We aim for the students to be:
Inquirer: Students’ natural curiosity will be nurtured as they inquire into different kinds of houses and factors that affect their structure and design and build it.
Open-minded: An understanding of their own culture and respect towards other cultures will be developed.
Students develop and enhance their creativity and imagination skills and will learn to collaborate with their peers.
