Create a plan for a neighborhood walking trail or other public facility. Improve recreational opportunities for people and habitats for animals in your community.
Work with a small group of classmates to design a recreational area in your community—either real or imaginary. Think about what facilities it might it include: Walking trail? Fish pond? Graffiti wall? Sunflower patch to attract birds? Rock wall? Boat launch? Stage? Ask classmates, family members, and others in your community to make suggestions.
Sketch your ideas with Crayola Twistables® Crayons. Determine how much space your trail will need. Recommend where it could be installed. Then prepare a replica of your plan.
Start with a flat base of Crayola Model Magic®. Model Magic fresh from the pack sticks to itself. Here are some suggestions for details. Use yellow Model Magic form sunflowers. Roll tiny terra cotta pieces into balls and press on for seeds. Add green coils for stems. Roll out rows of soil. Plant tiny Model Magic tomatoes, lettuce, and corn. Decorate a graffiti wall with thin rolls of Model Magic. Press blue modeling compound into a lake shape. Form an oval fish, attach a tail, and decorate. Roll a thin white piece to form a fishing line and make a pole.
Label areas with paper signs. Attach signs to toothpicks with Crayola School Glue. Compare and contrast your group’s plan with others. Consider presenting the most feasible plan to decision makers in your community.
