West Middle School sixth grade teacher Cortney Sheid had her students complete an E2L (Engage2Learn) unit on area, angles, measurement and graphing in order to create a floor plan for their dream home.
The class partnered with Chris Henderson, Ponca City Development Services Director.
Sheid received donated samples from Anderson Flooring so students could pick out flooring, paint and appliances to practice their skills. After students made their material selections, they then used the skills they had learned in the unit to determine area and costs.
Henderson came to West Middle School to hand out “official building permits” to some of Sheid’s students. In order to receive an official building permit from Henderson, students had to meet the building requirements he suggested.
Out of all the floor plans submitted, five students were chosen as finalists. These five plans will be reviewed further by Henderson and his wife Julia, who is a local architect. They will choose the winning floor plan that will be drawn up as an elevation plan. This will show the winning student what their floor plan would look like from the front and side as an actual house.
