I'm with Julie; if I anticipate a large number of students choosing a
particular theme or assignment, I simply limit how many students can
choose that theme. In a colonial town, there probably WOULD have been
only one of each trade. Perhaps next time, you could have several
groups design their own little communities, so the trades get spread
over several students.
