The City of New Haven

Students examine the geography, politics and history of their local town of New Haven, Connecticut. Using the internet, they explore the neighbors of New Haven and write directions from their house to school. In groups, they research recent information about the city from the cities website and share what they have gathered. To end the lesson, they build a model of the city and its physical characteristics.
