My World Project- such a clever way to teach little one about the great big world

My World Project- Kid World Citizen

cute project to teach where they are in their world - social studies

This might be cute if we re-worked a bit? A big book of "this is me," "this is my school," "this is my neighborhood," "this is my city," state-- country-- world-- solar system?! For older kids, obvi.

Education to the Core: Me on the Map Activity! Help kids understand the area around them!

So cute... this can double as a way to help the munchkins learn about weather at home :) Need to also make this for the classroom

How clever!

Do this as a center with cut and paste cubes (tuck the top in) - side one - illustration, side two - city/state/country, etc... - side 3 - Chicago, IL, USA... Do Chicago, IL, USA, NA, Northern Hemisphere, Earth

Even though this is a 1st grade project, even my 3rd graders could benefit. They really struggle with State, Country, and Continent. I can't wait to try this!

Main Idea Activities (K-2) Clever!

{Carrots Are Orange} Introduce Preschoolers to Zoology with this easy & inexpensive lesson.

a really fun idea for classroom management/transitions... the "action cup!" write different actions on popsicle sticks, such as "pretend your legs are spaghetti" and have one student pick an action for the class to do each time they transition!

A cute and easy way to do brain breaks. Anytime I think one is necessary in my classroom I would have a student come up and draw from the cup blindly and whichever activity they draw the whole class will do. All these ideas are real simple and provide as a quick break to help refocus my students.
