    I have built a "mini-city"
    -cover a table with paper and have the students plan out their community - places they want - rivers,lakes parks etc.
    Draw out lots and choose sites by drawing #'s
    Kids can papermache milk cartons to make homes and decorate their town. You can lead into several things from this point - I have operated the town for a entire school year and taught many things using it - elections, landforms, people in the communities, jobs, money/banking - even roads and street construction. Have fun. Feel free to ask any questions.
