Tallahassee, Florida --

4th graders at Riley Elementary are trying their hand at urban and regional planning.

It may seem too advanced, but the program called 'Box City' allows FSU graduate students to teach the youngsters about the importance of city planning in a simplified way.

Friday, the kids asked questions about the city they built, and the class went over why it's important for cities to have things like road signs.

FSU Grad student Katelyn Feit said, "They're really receptive. A lot of the concepts we're teaching them... they've really never thought about before."

After discussing the importance of where things are placed in a city, the students put their boxes down, one-by-one. The kids made houses, a high school, and all sorts of buildings needed in a city.
