Build a House…Build a Dream 2015

 

Looking for a new channel to engage students in math, social studies, writing and/or presentation skills?

Interested in creating a class project to bring some excitement to the cold, short winter days?

Habitat for Humanity of Delaware Valley’s Build A House, Build A Dream Contest for Kids may offer you both! Since 2002, more than 5000 fifth grade students from 750 schools throughout the Delaware Valley have participated, and the contest has raised over $550,000 to help support Habitat’s regional homebuilding initiatives.

Join the Build A House … Build A Dream Contest!

The contest challenges fifth grade students (individually or as a small team) to build three dimensional, model “dream homes”, and present their homes to our judges at the event. Participating students’ imaginative, colorful designs reflect their far ranging interests and the issues that concern them. Adults involved learn a lot from these impressive kids too!

Both students and teachers have found it a fun way to learn and teach various topics, such as:
Social and Environmental Studies—Finding the inspiration for their design creates research opportunities into current events, environmentally friendly building, their own heritage, and other cultures.
Math—Building a proportionate home within the size restrictions helps students practice their math skills through measurement, conversion, and basic addition and subtraction. It also demonstrates the need for these skills in daily life!
Writing and Presentation Skills—Composing a short essay describing their home and making a brief oral presentation of their home to our volunteer judges helps students practice their communication skills.

Habitat for Humanity of Delaware Valley’s Twelfth Annual Build A House … Build A Dream Contest for Kids will be held at:

Villanova University on Saturday, March 21, 2015.
