The Create a Community Project by Miss Jean’s Class was created to allow students to focus on a specific country of study. It can be used as a culminating project or additional project to allow students to add a fictitious community to a country you have studied in their grade level social studies class and to work on geography skills as they develop a complete map of their new community within their country. Some of the skills developed here include:
Understanding map features – map legend, scale, compass rose
Geography – researching a country and drawing a map (including waterways, cities)
How communities fulfill their needs
Cultures within a community
Included with this assignment is the complete printable student booklet and a rubric for assessment purposes.
