Buildings: City vs. Country
- Grades: PreK–K
- assortment of magazines
Objectives: Through discussion, children will compare and contrast buildings found in the city and buildings found in the country. They will represent their ideas on a conceptual organizer, the Venn diagram.
- Talk with children about your community and the buildings that can be seen there.
- Then discuss different kinds of buildings. Buildings are used for different purposes and can be found in different environments.
- Draw a Venn diagram on tagboard, labeling one circle “City,” one “Country,” and the intersecting area “Both.”
- Allow children to look through magazines to find pictures of buildings or to draw their own.
- Have children cut them out and decide where they go on the Venn diagram. A skyscraper would go in the city circle, and a barn would go in the country circle. A school could be placed in the intersecting circle labeled “Both.”
