This 5 day lesson plan is a great way to help students understand what a community needs to thrive. They will spend the first day brainstorming what type of business or jobs a community needs to run. The second day they will be assigned a job, and then filling out a business application. The rest of the days there are discussion and creativity at work, as students begin to build their town or city. This project is a hands on way to help students understand communities.
