Product Description
My 6th graders got really into this project, so I'm excited to share it with y'all!

I did my best to include an editable version as well as a PDF, please let me know if it didn't work! My email is boynton.kristin@ic.edu.

First, students learn what a civil engineer is/does, then they become one. I’ve included two different letters introducing their task: I like the realism of the flooding scenario, but with the recent disaster in Texas I wanted to provide another example that may hit further from home.

Next, they complete a table planning out the dimensions of their buildings. It may be helpful for them to use graph paper at this step, too, so that they can experiment with different ways of making the given perimeter, area, etc. Two tables are included so you can do either just area and perimeter, or area, perimeter, and volume.

Then, students transfer the paper map they created onto a posterboard (the ones with grids).

Finally, give students a chance to tour each others’ cities and see their hard work!
