Go through the pictures on the slide show and brainstorm any thoughts and observations about how math can create walls and the distributive property.
Use the students’ brainstorm comments to get them understand of distributive property and how to find the amount of blocks are in the walls.
Once the students have made these connections unveil the big idea.
Math is needed to construct all buildings and measuring the area and perimeter of shapes are its tools.
Blueprint 15 Minutes.
Pass out the Blueprint Worksheet and help the students as they design their homes foundation by drafting rooms and plans for the walls. As students finish have them peer review each other's work before entering the Home Prototype World.
Developing a Prototype 30 Minutes
Student will enter the Home Prototype World and have three activities to complete that will follow the worksheet.
Debrief 5-10 minutes
1) What is the distributive property?
2) How can it help you make rooms
3) How can perimeter help you make walls?
Day 4 Built it In Survival
Start the day by reviewing your blueprints and take note on how many blocks you need.
Mine 15 minutes
Now that we have our plans and found how many materials of home foundations, it will be time to mine blocks for the class. Divided the students up into 3 groups
Be sure to remind your students that the blocks they are collecting are for everyone so bring back at least 3 or more stacks of stone, wood, and concrete materials.
Craft 15 Minutes
Put down 9 chest into 3 rows labeled stone, wood, and mud/flowers. Also, put down a few furness loaded with coal and have students empty all their inventories into the community chest. Once all the items are in chest the students will craft items that they need, they can make stone bricks, slabs, concrete, polished blocks, or whatever material they used in their prototype.
Building Walls and Rooms
When walls and rooms, students should take extra glass because if the make a mistake it will break.
Fly up and look at your road map .
1) Show off different students work and let them talk about how they did it.
Depth of Knowledge 4
1. The student was able to create walls on their foundation by stacking loops of perimeters on top of one another and explain how walls = perimeter x height. (3.MD.8 3.MD.7A)
2. The student was able to design prototypes of floor plans on the worksheet and in creative mode.
3. The student was able to build and explain models on how Ax(B+C)=(AxB)+(AxC) and how it relates to their floor plan. (3.MD.5, 3.MD.6, 3.MD.C.7.C)
4. The student was able to find and explain the area and perimeter of a two-room floor plan. (3.MD.7.B, 3.MD.8, 3.MD.6 3.MD.5)
5. The student was able to explain strategies on how they did the math, such as measuring and the length and width to find the area.
6. The student was able to build walls and rooms for a home in Survival World.
7. The student was able to show higher level thinking skills by changing equations to make new looks in their homes or realized and accounted for the difference between the measured perimeter and the amount of blocks in the perimeter.
