My Green City Lesson Plan 1
Introduction lesson to My Green City
Years: 5, 6
Curriculum Objectives: 9
Subjects: D&T, English, Geography, PSHE
Bring your Design and Technology lessons to life by challenging your class to plan their own sustainable city. Through this creative resource series, pupils explore examples of cities around the world and evidence of successful city planning, identify the needs of the population, and understand the challenges resulting from an increase in urban population.
Children work in teams to draw plans and exploded diagrams of their sustainable city, before creating a 3D model and leading city tours for other groups. Each team also draws up and presents a city charter for their population, exploring how we can all live more sustainably.
This project would be perfect as a class Design and Technology project or competition, with strong links to English and creative opportunities to build in a range of cross-curricular learning objectives.
This resource has been developed from an original resource and competition designed by the Architecture Centre in Bristol
