Communities

Project

Imagine

Can you take your schema about communities and landforms and apply it to help a family. Your group will get a family with different situations for them needing to move to a new community. You will need to analyze the family situation and then use their schema and research to find a new community that will be a better fit for the family. Watch the following video to see how this family changed their community to better fit their family. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9anJeLd1aegThen you will make a Google Slides presentation of what your group feels is the best community and landform for their assigned family. You will present the Google Slides presentation to the class.

Plan

Each group will be assigned a family situation from below. You will need to read the situation and discuss the families needs with your group.
You will research and fill in the research recording sheet for the advantages and disadvantages for your family in each community. Then you will fill in the landform section with the landforms that best fit your family's needs.


You can use the following sites to help you decided which community and landform is the right fit for your family.
