Year 5 students discussed cities and what they are made up of, what is important and so on. Later they were asked to design their own cities. They used Comics Head Lite to plan their cities and state what was important and why they had hospitals, police stations, playgrounds among other things.
Later students used the City Island iPad app to build virtual cities and make sure they functioned well, keeping communities happy. below is a screen shot from the game.
