Sustainable Cities Project Based Learning

The grade 8S class were given the exciting task to build a sustainable city. They worked in small groups as a design team to develop official plans for a new city focusing on the principles of sustainability. The city had to be designed to minimize environmental impact through energy, water, and food usage. Waste and pollution also needed to be carefully managed. During their collaborative group work,they worked on planning their cities, making the budget for the city and getting that approved, and making a variety of draft plans for their city in 2D plans. The end product was building their actual 3D city models in their groups.  It was the biggest highlight of our grade 8 year so far!
