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

    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.

    My World Project- Kid World Citizen

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

    Fun activities with tape, straws, and pom poms. This is a great oral-motor exercise, calming and rocusing activity for children. Whether they're working on Sensory needs, speech, etc. I've done this with a few kids on my case load to help strengthen lip, cheek and jaw muscles to prepare for speech.

    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

    Love this project it is more organized and clean looking then some of the others like it.

    I would use this activity to help students get an idea of where they actually are in regards to the bigger idea that they live in a house, on a street, in a city, in a state, in a country and so on. This is helpful for students to actually get it so that it makes sense on their level. You could also do this on a smaller scale first of the school so they get an idea before the large scale project that this is.

    Neighborhood under construction in preschool WOW!!! I've tried creating a neighborhood on a billboard with family photos of the children framed in house shapes, but the 3-dimensionality of this project, the ownership of the houses and the book by Gail Gibbons as a provocation is just brilliant!!!!
