The project was used at the end of our novel unit. It was cross curriculum with Social Studies. The students were studying government in Social Studies, so we weaved what they knew about community and government into this project.
Introduction to the project:
The government has called upon you to create a utopian community. You and your planning team must work together to construct not only a utopian community, but also to make a brochure for prospective residents. You will have four sections that each member of your community will responsible for: Government, Lifestyle, Economy, and Recreation. As a team, you will need to construct the front and back cover of the brochure.
