First grade students have researched birdhouse designs. Students drew scale drawings of a birdhouse design on graphing paper. Students then designed a pattern for one piece of a birdhouse (side, back, front, top, etc...). Students then drew their design on a piece of a birdhouse. The next step is for the students to design and create an advertisement to sell the birdhouses. They will make posters as well as create an ad to be placed on the school website.
