strategies and appropriate digital technologies to solve problems involving all four
operations.

ACMNG136 Using units of measurement: convert between common metric units of

length, mass and capacity

ACMNG137 Using units of measurement: solve problems involving the comparison

ACTDEP025 Generate, develop, communicate and document design ideas and

processes

for

audiences

using

appropriate

technical

terms

and

graphical

representation techniques.
LESSON AIM:
Students will design a house that will fit on 800m2 and complete the measurements for the
area and the perimeter of the house and individual rooms.
STUDENTS PRIOR KNOWLEDGE
LIKELY MISCONCEPTIONS
Students have

previous lessons on

calculating area and perimeter

LESSON OBJECTIVES:
1. Students will design their own house including all the measurements for area and
perimeter
2. Students will have a solid understanding of area and perimeter in every day life
situations
3. Students will design their own house following basic instructions of what needs to be
included
LEARNING OUTCOMES AND DIFFERENTIATION :

ASSESSMENT OF OUTCOMES :

All Students will:

a) Design a house with area and perimeter

measurements

b) Have a solid understanding of scale and how their

c) Correct measurement

calculations

Most students will:

c) Complete their house designs to a high standard with a
lot of detail in their drawing
d) Push themselves to design a house that is testing their
capabilities to improve themselves
Some students will:
e) Use their prior knowledge to work on perimeter and
area problems that do not fit into regular shapes

INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS (SEN, GIFTED AND TALENTED ETC.):

Use shapes and designs that are not regular shapes eg. Circles and triangles

Once students have designed

their block I will get the class
back together and discuss the
requirements for the house

how big/small, how many

stories, if they want a garden
etc.

I will draw an idea on the

board to show what is required
including a driveway, house
and garden etc.

Close the lesson by getting

each student to write their
names on their design and
handing up to the front

LESSON EVALUATION SHEET

In what ways, if any, did the lesson deviate from the lesson plan?
The lesson went pretty much to plan except for the time schedule as the first activity to
a little less time and therefore the students had more time on the actual design.
However, my mentor teacher took over control when it came to discussing the sizes for
the land as she wanted to go into more detail.
How well did students respond to the lesson content, activities and learning
environment?
I felt like the students responded well to the lesson as they were excited and had lots of
ideas of what they wanted their house to look like. This allowed for the students to
come up with a high quality of work and complete the tasks on time.

How well did students meet the planned learning outcomes and how was this
assessed?
The students are well o their way to meet the learning outcome; we will have one more
lesson where they will complete their designs and measurements which will then be
assessed. Todays lesson was merely assessed by seeing the students on their way to
completing their design with their block size measured and to scale and beginning
design on the rooms.
What learning and teaching strategies were used and how did they affect
learning?
The learning and teaching strategies used were to ensure the students were given small
tasks at a time so they stayed on track and also using prior knowledge so they had a
basis of understanding of what they were to do.
I think relating the measurement of area and perimeter to everyday life was a good
strategy to get the kids to further their knowledge and skills in this area.

What strategies were used to maintain class discipline and motivation?

I used the times where they got off task to bring them all back together to move on to
the next task or regain their focus. I also added in a ten minute break in the middle of
the lesson so they didnt get too ratty from sitting down too long.
