Students are doing a wonderful job on their architecture project this past week. They will be finishing the drawing of their floor plans by the 26th with hope that they will begin their models after Thanksgiving.

This year students have asked about creating their homes using minecraft. I have had students do this before in the past with great success so this year I am going to add a final component of the architecture unit to allow student to showcase their talents in architecture. Students may create their home in mindcraft or they can focus more on interior design by using another program online called Icovia or they can choose to draw the exterior of the home.
