The Indus River Valley was known for their centrally planned cities. To reinforce this concept, the Create Your Own City worksheet tasks students with creating their own city! Students are given different building types, sizes, and told that a certain number of each building is required in their city. This product gets students thinking about how cities are planned!
Some great questions to go along with this product:
- Do you want your jail next to your elementary school?
- What challenges did you face when planning your city?
- How would the activity be more/less difficult if I asked you to complete it in small groups?
- Do you think traffic would be an issue in your city?
