LEWISTOWN – Indian Lake fifth graders in Advanced Language Arts are still thinking about food after Thanksgiving. Building tasteful towns is their latest project.
The group studied Milton Hershey and the history of the model town he built for his employees called Hershey, Pa., in 1907. The students were then challenged to create their own city based on food groups, with its own background and current attractions. The students presented their projects this week.
Some students created maps of their towns and others built small versions with buildings, roads and modes of transportation. Teacher Cammie Honaker says the unit was designed to get students thinking and writing about the communities around them and the communities that live in their own imagination.
