Shipwrecked

Imagine yourself shipwrecked on an uncharted deserted island! You and your group will have to design a new town based on the diameter of the island. Scholars will discover what makes a great town and then use their skills of area and perimeter to determine the size and amount of buildings that can go in their cities. Using tape and "construction" paper, teams will determine zoning, layout, and purpose for their town. They will explore marketing techniques to attract visitors and business to their community. Great for future developers, architects, engineers, and city planners!
