Make a pushcart

Have students create a pushcart. For the sake of portability, students can use shoe boxes or some similar small box as a basis for the cart. As an alternative, have students make full-sized pushcarts and bring them on different days or break students into groups to build a pushcart.

Have students make a map of your school, town or neighborhood. As an alternative, ask the local Chamber of Commerce or city offices if there are maps available for each student.
