A great idea for teaching kids about the important place they play in their community. This helps to build a sense of identity and purpose. I would tweak it a little though so it doesn't look like they are the center of the universe
I think that this would be an excellent get-to- know-you activity for students that can also serve as wall art! I want a classroom that feels like a community so ideally I want everyone to get to know their peers and become comfortable with each other.
Tape Measure It: This is a favorite! I give my son a tape measure, and a chart of objects for him to find and measure. He records the length of each object. On page 2 of the printout, he charts the objects based on length then lets me know which one was longest and shortest
