I will just paste and copy this. This is an assignment I gave to my middle school students:
Geometry Map Project
Angles, Lines and Triangles
Your task is to design a map that includes several different kinds of lines, angles and triangles. Your map can be of a town, your neighborhood or a made up place. It must however include the following:
 Two sets of streets that are parallel
 Two sets of streets that are perpendicular
 One street that intersects another streets to form an obtuse angle
 One street intersects another to form an acute angle
 One street that is a line segment
 One street that is a line
 One street that is a ray
 An ice cream parlor in the shape of an equilateral triangle
 A Pool that is in the shape of a scalene triangle
 A Pizza Place in the shape of a Isosceles triangle
 Your map must also include a compass rose
Once your map is completed you are to write out five directions from one place to another. Each direction must have one of these terms: parallel, intersecting or perpendicular. These directions should be able to get your teacher and classmates from one place to another without getting lost!
