CONSTRUCTION WORKBOOK

Fourth & Fifth Grade


WHAT HOUSES ARE MADE OF!

Read about how houses are built then label the diagram. Once you’ve finished, color it in. When building a house, you must first start with the FOUNDATION, the base of the house. Once your foundation has been laid, you will then begin to build the EXTERIOR WALLS, which will protect your house from outside elements like weather and animals. After your exterior walls are built, you will begin to build the INTERIOR WALLS, which separate the rooms inside your house. You will then need to construct the ROOF, again to protect the inside of your house from outside elements. Finally it will be time to complete your house. You will install SIDING to the exterior walls, consisting of brick. You will also need to install the WINDOWS and DOORS to your house.
