Having students create their own world is a great way to encourage creativity as well as consider many different aspects of our society. This is a very high-interest writing assignment for students as it gives kids the ability to make up their own rules! This would be a great project to incorporate with a social studies class as well. This project can be easily adapted for students of different abilities- I have done this with all abilities of students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. This document includes a handout sheet with a description of the project as well as a rubric for grading.
