Students in AP Human Geography are building city models. Rather than learning about cities around the world by using a textbook, this activity gives students a hands-on experience.

AP Human Geography students are taking a creative twist on their unit by making city models in Minecraft, Icograms, or drawing it, in order to help students expand their understanding on how cities are built.

Students are assigned a region and pick a city from it. then they create an urban model of it where they can get creative.

“So they’re working on a project that’s gonna facilitate their ability to actually visualize an urban model in different cities as they exist around the world, whereas a textbook is just black and white just geometric shapes and in this project they’re actually making a real city,” AP Human Geography teacher Micheal Kouznetsov said.

Rather than a lecture or reading, the way this project is being done is appreciated by freshman Kyron Frances. 

“This project really helps the class become more engaged and interactive and also help us learn about the models better,” Frances said.”
