We are beginning our community unit and we combine it with our mapping standards. I love this book Me on the Map.
This book is a great tool when teaching about maps. We make our own Me on the Map book. Each student makes their own and is the star of the book. I take their picture, cut it out and glue it to a popsicle stick. This picture of them moves to each page. Here are the pages of one of finished books. The cover has an “exploding egg” that I shared about here.
Same page as above, just the flap is closed.
It’s hard to tell in the, but California has gold glitter for the “golden state.”
On the last page, you can lift up the school. A group picture of them will underneath the school. There you have it. Tomorrow we are off to visit a worm farm. The worm farm is one of my favorite field trips. I will share about it soon. Many of the worm activities that I will do come from my Reduce, Reuse, Recycle & Rot! unit.
