Communities and Maps...

Here are some things we've been busy doing in Social Studies:

We use the SRA Imagine It! series for reading.  In our Back to School unit, we read Little Red Riding Hood.  Then we made a cross-curricular connection and drew maps from Little Red Riding Hood's house to Grandma's house.

Our first unit in Social Studies focused on Communities.  We created triaramas showing characteristics of a rural, suburban, and urban community.  Then in the last section they made a tree map about the three different communities.

We used "paint chip" samples to create our skyscrapers.  Thanks pinterest for the great idea!

We also learned about Florida symbols.  My students created these bubble maps to organize their symbols.
