There has been an earthquake at the north pole which has destroyed Santa's Workshop and entire North Pole Community.
Students are enlisted to design and create their own north pole while following the requirements laid out by Santa, the Elves and the Reindeer.
There are 4 main components in this project:
Design- students must design a new north pole that meets the needs of Santa, the elves and the reindeer.
Build- students must build a model of their design paying close attention to ensure the are building things to scale.
Persuasive Business Letter- students must write a letter to Santa, the elves and the reindeer persuading them to use their design.
Persuasive Oral Presentation- students get up and present their model and explain why their model should be chosen.
A full alternate assignment has been included for students who don't celebrate Christmas rebuilding the South Pole- home of the Do-goods, their penguins and gnomes.
