In the Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! story “When You Need Your Numbers,” Martin is inspired to use his numbers when making a model house. You can make a model of your room by using a measuring tape, some cardboard and some tape.
First measure the length and width and height of your room to the nearest foot. Then turn the feet into inches and measure out the same number of inches on your sheet of cardboard. If your room was 10 feet long, then your cardboard model will be 10 inches long. Cut out the floor and walls and tape them together. If you want to add windows and doors and furniture, you can measure and cut those too!
