  • the landscape,
  • the climate,
  • the form of government,
  • the flag,
  • the anthem, etc.

Grades 5-8

Develop a state charter with your class:

  • Make sure you include all elements that your city needs to survive (energy, food, nature, access to resources, transport links, etc.)
  • You might also want to consider what will the state inhabitants need to enjoy a well-rounded and pleasurable life? Will they need community centres, art museums, historical routes or locations like recycling centres near to buildings, convenient routes for transport, optimum areas for wind farms, etc.?
