Teach your students about the history and principles of urban planning with this engaging mini unit. Lessons in the file include:
1 - Urban Problems : Students learn about the difficulties which major cities faced during the Industrial Revolution.
2 - Joseph Bazalgette : A project based on the development and construction of London's sewer system during the mid-1800s.
3 - Baron Haussmann : Another project case study based on the rebuilding of Paris during the rule of Napoleon III.
4 - Principles of Urban Planning : Students learn and discuss the major ideas which influence city planners today.
5 - City Planning Model Project : Students use pre-made templates to design their own city plan.
Included for each lesson are reading, work, and image sheets. There is also a PowerPoint presentation to help guide teachers and students through the materials. Please download the preview sheet for more details.
