Beginning Cooltopia Construction

Beginning Cooltopia Construction

It’s been a very short week, but we have still worked hard on our building of Cooltopia.  We have been creating a list of stores and buildings we may need in Cooltopia to have it function as a town.  The students then helped narrow this list down to 13 buildings they thought were essential.  They ended up with the following list:

  1. fire station
  2. school
  3. restaurant
  4. hospital
  5. police station
  6. hardware store
  7. car dealership
  8. grocery store
  9. book store or library
  10. pet store
  11. musesum
  12. post office
  13. bank

The students then had a choice of what store/building they would like to begin creating.  Today, we started creating the store fronts.  These are made by stapling two file folders together so they make something that will stand up in front or the students when they are beginning to sell what they are making.  The students are doing a great job!
