Step by step
Find a friend that you want to design with! Today, we’ll be designing a community TOGETHER!
As a pair, decide what buildings will go in your new town. A school, a home, a toy factory, a fire station…….. Whatever you want! Try to agree between you a maximum of 4 different buildings that you’ll be designing together.
Take a sheet of paper, divide it into 4 spaces, and on each corner, write down the names of the buildings you’ll be designing. In the middle draw a park area with green pencils! This is your new TOWN.
Take the other 4 sheets of paper, and fold them in two equal portions. This will be where you design!
In turn, and WITHOUT showing your design partner, draw the bottom of each of your 4 buildings on each sheet.
Then turn the page over so your design partner can draw the top of the buildings WITHOUT looking at the bottom design!
Then….. unfold each of the 4 designs! These are your 4 new buildings! Do you like them? What would you change?
Finally, place each of the 4 designs on the corners of your TOWN sheet, and using a pen or pencil, draw paths to cycle and walk along connecting each of the buildings! WELL DONE on designing an amazing new town!
