I used this for one of my homeschool classes and they absolutely loved it. Just make sure you make plenty of copies of the grid paper and have tape handy. The students went to town creating their town. We even made a larger city that was awesome. The kids were very proud of their work and showed it off to the parents when they came for pick up.
I was tentative in getting this but glad I pushed purchase. All I need is a printer, scissors and tape and my kids were off to the races. They built an amazing structure. As long as I have enough paper this project could go on for a long time. Definitely met my expectations.
I thought my kids might enjoy this project, so I decided to give it a shot, since the description promised "clear directions." Well unless there is a separate file I didn't get there are basically no instructions. Seriously, the directions included say "Students will create nets on the grid paper." Not how to create one, just do it. If you don't already know what you are doing, skip this one. Then there are some shapes printed on grids that make no sense. Nothing is labeled. I still think it would be fun if I could figure it out. I am super disappointed.
All of my homeschool students know this story. It's an awesome multiplication connection and conversion story too! I had no idea about this and it was great to learn something knew alongside my students.
