Our City

We have been learning about 3D shapes.  As part of our learning we had to show that we could create a net for a shape and turn it into a 3D shape.  Most of us chose to make cubes and rectangular prisms.  Some of us got a little creative and we made triangular prisms, cylinders and even pyramids.  We were so proud of our efforts we decided to create a town/city with them.  

Wow how this little lesson has created a world of fun.

From our city we have created:

  • Road
  • Zoo
  • Dinosaur Park
  • Police Station
  • Mechanics
  • School
  • Bank
  • Bus Stop
- We had to buy the land first before we were able to build on it.
- We have also written letters of application to ask if we can be employed in different jobs.  We had to prove that we had he skills appropriate to work in that business.
- Some employers have paid out wages to their staff.
- Miss Hutchings and Mrs Murphy were the Prime Ministers.

At the end of the term we had to take down our city for the classroom to be cleaned.  We wonder where this creative pathway will take us next term?
