Blueprint Building

Blueprint Building

Learning Goals: Self-Regulation, Visual Arts, Spatial Sense, STEM


This example is similar to the Documenting Building example, however the documentation occurs in the reverse order. 

    • Provide students with chart paper or grid paper and have them draw a "blueprint" for what they want to build. 
      • Optional: give the class a building challenge such as a racetrack to design a blueprint of first.
    • Students can design blueprints in groups or by themselves. As an extension: have students label their blueprints with words and arrows.  
    • Once blueprints are complete, provide students with ample time and materials to build their creation while following their blueprint. 
    • Take a picture of each creation beside the blueprint to have students compare their plan to their final product!
