Design and Budget Your Own Dream Room

What middle schooler wouldn't want to design their own dream room? This project walks them systematically through the steps of calculating wall area, purchasing paint and carpet, designing a ceiling pattern, hanging shelves for storage, shopping for furniture, and managing all of the costs. Along the way they calculate areas, compute budgets, convert measurement units, and create a pattern.
