Product Description
This project pulls together many aspects of geometry with some U.S. History and geography thrown in there!

Students follow instructions for using "nets" with specific volumes to create 3-D buildings (White House, Capitol, different Memorials and Monuments, etc.) found along the Mall in Washington, D.C. to put on a coordinate grid map at specific points designated by coordinate pairs. They are also asked to draw things at specified locations, such as the Potomac River, Pennsylvania Avenue, etc. The finished project . . . a 3-D representation of the Washington, D.C. Mall area. It may not be a "perfect" to-scale model, but it will be close! There is plenty of room for creativity, and students may certainly add things to their 3-D maps.

A Scoring Rubric is also included. Great to combine with some research and reporting about our nation's capitol! A fun learning experience!
