This file includes a plan for making a town based on teacher's last name. Students will review concepts of specialization, capital/human/natural resources, consumer, producer, interdependence and customer.
The plan includes ways to incorporate technology and invite school participation. There is an alternate plan for teachers without technology resources in their rooms.
I have included two extension ideas and ways to incorporate other homerooms or grade levelsOne extension activity allows you to review geography concepts and vocabulary. I have tailored my worksheet for resources throughout the state of VA, but you can tailor the last part for the state in which you teach.
This is a favorite project in my classroom on an annual basis. They really get into creating the best town and winning the competition.
