Changing Places: Sustainable City Project
This Changing Places Sustainable City Project for Year 9 students will provide them with the opportunity to plan out and create a model of a sustainable city.
Sustainable Cities is a collaborative project-based learning activity in which students brainstorm and design a green city. In collaborative groups, students create a 2D drawing to design a sustainable city. They will then create a 3D or digital model. This project is incredibly relevant today with climate change being a serious global threat to human societies.
