I stapled together the layered booklets before we began our project. On the first (shortest) page, each child drew their house. Then we zoomed out to our city, then country, and so on. We used various other maps to locate North America, the United States, and Michigan.
We've done some lovely mapping activities this year, and there is more to come. I believe our next project will be to recreate the seven continents in a 3-D way, using clay or playdough.
|One child's first page - his house on his street.|
|Another child's second page - a map showing his city.|
|Various children's booklets, all put together - so fun!|
