In planning your town, I have added a rubric for all of you team members to use. Please click on the link, Town Map Rubric, and print it out for reference. While the town you create is fictional, I want you to relate town features to everyday life in the communities you live in. For example, say that your neighborhood as this elementary school and you went there. You would show a similar feature on your fictional map.
The key is authenticity. The fictional map you create has to be believable and better yet, inviting. You will be presenting this map in the classroom and your peers will compare your map creation to theirs.
Enjoy the town planning activity!
