Housing Project

This Housing Project activity & project also includes:

Find everything you need for a two-week home construction simulation project for your high school economics class. They come up with the plans for a custom home including the cost per square foot, interest rate, mortgage term, down payment, property taxes, insurance rates, interior decorating, and more. Learners use an online calculator to determine some of these numbers, however the link on the lesson may not work. Find another one easily online to recommend. Consider updating this lesson a bit to reflect more modern technology (for example, you can have scholars arrange furniture to scale in an online program instead of glue pieces into a room). There is a 300-point rubric and written directions included.
