The unusual and creative designs of Novelty Architecture are immediately interesting to middle school students. This lesson is perfect for an introduction to engineering, design, CAD, careers, advertising/marketing or history.
After a class discussion about the examples in the PowerPoint (and/or the additional examples in the resources section), students design their own functional building that meets the criteria for novelty architecture. They explore some of the potential problems in designing a building of this type and have the opportunity to utilize their creative skills as they find a unique way to create a building that looks like the company’s product or service.
Included with this Lesson
• Teacher Resources and Lesson Overview
• PowerPoint of examples of Novelty Architecture
• Project Expectations for Novelty Architecture Design (includes rubric)
My 7th and 8th graders love this project each year and I hope yours will too!
About the Seller
My store provides STEM and Technology Lessons for Middle School and Secondary grades. Over 20 years in training and education including, most recently, 8 years teaching Career and Technology Education (CTE) for 7th and 8th grade.
My goal is that my students have fun while learning valuable life skills. I design lessons that help them be independent, life-long learners. Students take ownership in their learning as they create their own questions and are motivated to assist in finding their own answers!
I had over 20 years Human Resources, Business Consulting, Technical Writing and Computer Training experience before following my dream of teaching! All those "real world" experiences are great to share with my students to help them attain their own dreams.
