-Extension Activities
-Differentiated Levels

Geometrocity is a project based learning activity where students will take their geometry skills and design their own city. This multi-tiered activity allows for immediate differentiation because of the size, and students may complete parts or the entire project based on your choosing. This project doesn’t just focus on math skills, as there are components of social studies (mapping skills), writing, problem solving and comprehension skills too.

Students will be creating a city that uses 2D and 3D, practicing both plane and solid geometry. This project allows for students to practice and apply learned skills in geometry while problem solving and making decisions based on their own knowledge, creativity, and imagination. Students will utilize many types of geometric concepts such as nets to create buildings and structures, designing parts of a city with shapes, lines, angles, and incorporating multiple skills at the same time to reach their objectives.

Geometrocity is broken into SEVEN phases.
Those phases are:
Phase One: Permits
-Reviewing and previewing geometric terms and visuals. Creating a mini-map.
Phase Two: Design & Build
-Up to nine city sections can be built. Each page has 10-14 requirements that must be completed.
Phase Three: Construction
-Putting our city together for the world to see.
Phase Four: Building Up
-Using nets and 3D to make the city rise above the paper.
Phase Five: Assessment
-Three types of self-assessments for students. Self, Individual, and group work.
Phase Six: Tourism
-Create a postcard to persuade visitors to come.
Phase Seven: Challenge
-5 extra higher level challenges for students that want to create more.
