City Creator {Architecture Planning}

City Creator is a great early finisher activity for the architects in your classroom. Think of this website as real life Lego building! Students can pick what kind of town they want to build, and then add buildings from the ground up. City Creator has a very simple user interface so students of all ages will be able to easily navigate the site and successfully create a city.

Did y'all ever play roller coaster typhoon growing up? That game where you would design your own theme park and then people would come visit and you would make money to expand and such? That is what this makes me think of - embracing the creativity that it takes to design and create an entire city.

Try it out & let me know what you think,
