Building Homes of Our Own is a free, interactive teaching tool for middle and high school classrooms developed by the National Association of Home Builders. Challenge students with this innovative simulation that presents a macro view of the entire home-building process, from site selection to final sale. Students collect information, solve problems and make choices as they build a 3-D home against a budget. Then they review credit applications and sell to the buyer of their choice.

Plus: An accompanying teacher’s guide provides additional activities, exercises and projects. A cross-indexed, content-standards listing ties activities and gameplay to specific national standards. View sample lessons for math, science, technology, social studies and English.
