I like to do supplemental activities on top of my curriculum,
so I hopped on over to Google and searched for some city-creating projects.
One of the first results was citycreator.com and I'm so glad I found it.
It's a simple, Sims-like program where you can design and build your own city.
My students loved it.
We spent the bulk of our time last week thinking up our cities
and implementing our designs.
