We have been learning a lot about our community and where it is. We read the book Me On The Map by Joan Sweeny. We talked about the character's spot on the map and compared it to our own. While the character lived in a different city and state as us, we both lived in the U.S.A. After discussing the book, we created our own spots on the map based on where we live.
We drew pictures of our houses and streets and we drew pictures to symbolize our town of Stratham, our state New Hampshire, our country The U.S.A, our continent of North America, and of our Planet Earth. We put all of these together to create our spots!
Over the next few weeks, we will continue to explore our community and our country as well as learn a little bit about the other continents around the world. Everyone really enjoys learning about our state as well as the other 49 by using the app Stack The States. Check it out!
