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.
On this page, you will find a roundup of additional resources for teaching kids about countries around the world. There are lots of neat things here including a printable passport, free videos from around the world, international recipes…and much more. Take a look!
A fun craftivity flap book where students write about all the friends they are going to see this summer, the places they want to visit, and the things they want to do. Includes eight different versions of the pages: blank, lined, blank & line, & picture frame, and two versions of the cover (with and without a sun). Each of those are with a normal block font and another "fun" font.
