PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

★ ★ Gifted and Talented - City Planners of the 21st Century ★ ★

The purpose of this STEM unit is for students to investigate the careers of city and regional planners as well as anticipated trends in the field. The students will apply this information to designing their own city or region for today or the future.

About This Unit:
Each class works through a guided unit to research and design their own city. The final project can be designed in a variety of ways including essay, presentation, model (made of packaging materials, etc), or technology such as SimCity or SketchUp.

I developed this unit for my gifted and talented students to investigate city design and apply critical thinking and problem solving to a creative task. I have used this unit with grade 4-7.
