Lesson Plans for this Unit
Community Map Project
I use a large school neighborhood map (approx. 5'X 5'). Students paint small boxes to represent the places in the community we have visited or seen on our neighborhood walks. They help to label streets, buildings, and other special places. They can make vehicles, trees, and paper dolls of themselves as well. This can be set out as a play center and children can recreate our shared experiences or invent new ones.
