This project by Suzanne Buras pulls together many aspects of geometry! Students follow instructions for using "nets" with specific volumes to create 3-D buildings to put on a coordinate grid map at specific points designed by coordinate pairs. They are also asked to draw things at specified locations, such as river, roads, subdivisions, parks, etc. The finished project . . . a 3-D city. There is plenty of room for creativity, and students are given the option of adding things to their 3-D maps. A Scoring Rubric is also included. A fun learning experience!
