The dwellings of the ages and the world reflect the diversity of humankind. 

Stream Description

Through a combination of academic inquiry, architectural drawing and model building, students learn that the diversity of humankind is reflected in the dwellings that have been used around the world and in history. In this stream students discover how climate, culture, history, geography and natural resources have combined to determine the houses man has built. Students engage in writing activities that include journal entries, reports and scripts for oral presentations. Technology enhances research, oral and visual presentations, and displays. Students also develop math and geometry skills by working with perspective drawing, architectural drafting and the construction of a home. Scale modeling further tests the students’ math skills.  


SIMULATION 1: Student groups will plan and construct a scale model of a dwelling based upon research in these areas: history/culture, geography, climate and architectural design and furnishings. Students will share their knowledge and project with others.
