  • 1/26 - discussed different types of land use and buildings of these types
  • 1/27 - started drawing map of city
  • It was interesting to plan out our city and figure out where to put all of our different types of land
  • Our first attempt at doing this was not a success, there was only one section of land for each type

Week 1

  • Week of 1/30-2/3
  • Our group found the area that we are going to use to build our city
  • We have started building things in our city using our planning map
  • I set the boundaries of our land (500 x 500)
  • I made maps for everyone to use

Week 2

  • Week of 2/6-2/10
  • Our group has started to build our city.
  • The locations shown below have been started and/or finished by our group.
  • I contributed to the construction of the boathouse, tower, deck, and roadways.

Week 3

  • Week of 2/13-2/17
  • Our group has finished outlining the areas where we will build most of our buildings.
  • Roads are currently being built to connect the areas.
  • I built a bridge to connect one side of the river to the other.


At this point, I am responsible for...

  • The outlining of boundaries.
  • The construction of roads.
  • Assistance in the construction of the boathouse.
  • Assistance in the construction of the dock.
  • Assistance in the construction of the tower.
  • Assistance in the construction of the deck in the park.
  • The construction of the recreational center.
  • Assistance in the construction of the high school.
  • The construction of the bridge.
  • The construction of houses in the suburbs.


A neighboring city is experiencing drought and famine. Our city will send them food and water. The food will come in the form of livestock and the water will come from a filtration plant.
