It is a project that has been revised many times by myself to make it better and better. There are at least 60hrs put into this assignment. It is very well detailed. It is meant to be partly independent and partly based on teacher directed. I let my students have a partner if they want it, but they each need to do their own booklet because part of it (e.g. buying a vehicle) they have to each do.
