So far, you have researched your province/country and planned an imaginary trip. You have discovered what the ethnic dress is for your location, and created a wonderful “person” to share. Now you will create a place to call “home”. Task 3 will be due on Monday, April 30th.
1. Review the climate and natural resources of your assigned location. Using that information, decide on the best design that would reflect an authentic dwelling. Consider the following: What is the economy? Will it be a humble home or a large estate? Is it on the water, or in the mountains, desert, or city? What natural resources are used? What architectural style will you copy?
2. Based on these decisions, find materials that could represent those that are really used. Please do not use pre-made kits (legos, Lincoln logs, etc.)
3. Plan and build your house. Your model home should be three dimensional, using any materials that will make it seem realistic. Your house should include land or water; whatever your home is located on.
You will need to use materials that will last until Booth Day, (Friday, May 4th), when you will be exhibiting. ORAL REPORT GUIDELINES House Project 1. Location of house: city, suburban or rural? 2.
