Geography – City Planning

Students are learning about urbanization and city planning, including how cities impact the environment, and the desirability of various city buildings and open spaces.  Students are also learning about spatial awareness as well as concepts such as infill , urban sprawl, and sustainability.  By creating these models, students can explore many real-world problems such as transportation, waste disposal, energy generation and energy alternatives, and the balance between recreation spaces, commercial districts, and residential zones.
