Ok, so I have one week before winter break and I thought of giving my Grade 8s a project to do, but I'm having difficulty fleshing it out. We've been working on the optimization of perimeter and area. I thought of giving them a project where they have to create their dream home. I was thinking of giving them a set area of land that they could use, and then a set area for their house and they had to create it from there with certain parameters (they need to have at least the basic rooms of a house - kitchen, bathroom, livingroom and bedroom) and they need to have a backyard. I was thinking of working in costs so that they would have to find the greatest area possible, with the smallest perimeter (fencing, for example, or a specific cost per meter to erect walls). Does that sound in the least bit ok, or should I scrape it and find something else?
