What we would like you to do is to draw an imaginary city. Think of all the cool things you can put in it: your favourite shops, parks with football goals, adventure playgrounds and even rides. Maybe there are flying cars or robots? Be as imaginative as you want! Then, either draw a picture of your city or a map of it. These examples will help get you thinking. Then label it, saying what everything is. Put an adjective next to each noun, e.g. instead of just “playground”, put “enormous adventure playground”. The more detail, the better!
