You guys take my breath away! The last time that happened was Mrs. B's Math Flip books and "Lovin Lit's" A Roller Coaster Day 7-Hour Complete Sub Plan Thematic Unit for GRADES 5-6 CCSS. The value of your product for the price is tremendous. Thank you! My teenage boys will do anything to be allowed to use a glue stick (one of the other teacher's said that here somewhere also), markers, and colored paper. Scissors aren't a good idea in a prison classroom. So, I will try this out at home with my husband (he's a good sport) to iron out kinks in my presentation; and I'm sure my students will really enjoy it. Understanding geometry is critical for them to successfully pass their GED exams; and wanting to understand it is even better. Thank you again!

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  October 9, 2013,  Kristin F. asked:
I teach special ed. and have a small group for my math class. I was wondering how this project was set up. Is it for individual students to complete a city or are they working in groups to create a city? Is there a way I can preview some of the pages before purchasing? I am interested but need to see how things are set up and worded for my students.

Thanks so much
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  October 10, 2013Wise Guys answered:
We have our students complete it individually. But you could easily have it as a group project. The directions are clear and specific as to what the students have to do. We think your students would enjoy this project!
