Measuring Instructions

Year 8 Birdhouse Measuring Instructions

The drawings you are given are the front view and the right hand side view

i.e. this is what the birdhouse looks like when viewed from the front and right hand side

The drawings are what’s called orthogonal (2D drawing) and are drawn at 1:1 scale

This means that they are the exact same size as the finished birdhouse


Put your name on the drawing, and then use a ruler and measure all the different sizes

I find it easier to write over the line that I have measured or to indicate with another line exactly where i have measured.


One you have put measurements for all the pieces, go onto the next step.
