End of the Year Activities | Create-A-City with Language & Design (Gr. 3-7).

Here's your play: we start a flexible mini project that lasts all week. You know, a little design, a little writing, and a little speech to tie it all together - something that goes with the flow of a final week and Boom-badda-bing!
