The perfect culminating activity for your communities unit. Students work in teams to create a urban, suburban, or rural community. They must use what they've learned in social studies to include the community's goods and services, as well as its natural, capital, and human resources. They can use the included checklist/rubric to help them keep on track. Once students have done the thinking in this packet, they will be ready to create their community with paper or boxes. Great long-term project that encourages collaboration and creativity!
