Geometric Town

I had my fifth grade class create a town for our geometry unit. They had to come up with a theme for the town and everything had to relate to that team (names of buildings, streets, etc.). They had a set of requirements for their map  so many parallel streets, perpendicular streets, intersecting streets, use 10 geometric shapes for the builings, have a park with a circular sandbox, triangular swingset, and a rectangular pool. All the dimensions were given. They used rulers, protractors, and a compass. There was a sheet with all the requirements and a score sheet to give a grade. They got very creative and really did a nice job with it. Sorry I can't give exact details. My papers are all in school. I did get it somewhere online. We worked on the project at the end of the classs periods if we finished up early.
