    Seriously one of the most genius teaching ideas I've seen in awhile... our country of the United States of America and how it is part of North America nesting cans.

  • Ashley Crumpton

    Nesting cans to teach U.S. States geography. State goes into country, country into continent, continent into world.

  • Cindy Nielsen

    Social Studies. Map nesting cans - my town is inside my state which is inside the US which is inside... This is a great idea!

  • Lori Singaraju

    map nesting cans - kids really do have a hard time with this concept - Amy Isaacson maybe you could share this idea with Sabre (I don't know why I can't use @ for you - keeps changing it to somebody I don't know)

  • Kat Vanoy

    "My town is inside my state, which is inside the US which is inside North America..." Genius! Great to teach geography to young kids.

  • Joice Franzen

    I teach older kids, but for elementary students, this is brilliant! Map Units- Create map nesting cans: my town is inside my state, which is inside the US, which is inside...
