Creating a Town is a
multi-level unit of study
that can be a menu study for individual students
or a teacher directed set of lessons
or a technology-based study that introduces MS Publisher
or even a mixture of all 3 versions.
Included are 20 pages of forms, rubrics, lesson plans, teaching hints, illustrations of sample products, and a chart of higher level thinking skills covered. There is even an Environmental Impact Assessment that touches on the ethics of urban development.
