Unit 4 Introduction

Unit 4:
My, how this house has grown!

Objective:
TLW measure and compare scale drawings to actual measurements of a space

Strategy:
Measurement, cooperative grouping

Materials:
Floor plan or scaled drawings of space, handout, measuring tools, calculator, access to actual space to be measured

Description of Activity:
Students will use primary documents (floor plans or architectural renderings) to compare structure’s interior space to the dimensions to­day. Students should be paired or placed in cooperative groups to complete the task.

Students will estimate dimensions and physically measure interior space of pre-selected room. Students will then take physical dimensions and convert to a scaled drawing without a legend. Students will be asked to calculate a legend based on calculations.

Modifications:
Activities 3 and 4 can be modified by supplying scale drawings of property maps, floor plans or architectural rendering for agrarian unit found in your area or region.

Unit 4 Work Sheet

My, how this house has grown!

Oakland Plantation began adding to its original structure shortly after its completion. Use the floor plans given to see the numerous changes that have been made.

  1. Estimate how many times larger the house is today from its original dimensions.
  2. Select a room of the house that you can walk freely around. Use your measuring devices and calculate the dimensions of the room.
  3. Using your dimensions, measure your scale drawing and determine the scale.
  4. Determine how many times larger the house is today from its original dimensions.
