Product Description
Bring your geometry unit to life with this Project Based Learning (PBL) experience.

This project is designed to help your students apply their knowledge about the properties of quadrilaterals through a simulation project. Your students will be required to design a 2D town square for Quadrilateral City using only quadrilaterals. The townspeople of Quadrilateral City have specific requirements for the types of buildings and public spaces they want included, and have requested that at least one of each type of quadrilateral is included in the design.

Students will have hands-on experience drawing quadrilaterals and using them in unique ways to design buildings, parks, roads and sidewalks. Each student will display their design on an 11”x17” aerial-view map.

They will then write a guide book that gives information about each of the spaces featured in their town square redesign. The pages of their guide books will be filled with pictures of the quadrilaterals they have designed along with expository descriptions of each space’s use and the unique properties associated with the quadrilateral used to design each space.

The culminating activity is for students to write a speech , which they will deliver at Quadrilateral City’s Town Hall Meeting. In this speech, students will introduce their design, verbally address the needs of the townspeople of Quadrilateral City, highlight the most important features of the redesign, and paint a brief narrative picture of what life in the new town square will be like.

This cross-curricular project based learning activity can be graded using the included rubrics . Each of the three project deliverables; map design, guide book creation and speech writing, has it’s own rubric so students can participate in a very specific and fair assessment process as they demonstrate their learning.
