Me On The Map

We have been wrapping up some studies on maps, where we live in the world and making a connection to the big concept of a whole earth and where we fit in. While review continents and oceans we have really spent some time on North America, Washington state and our local community.

A fun book to help drive this concept home is Me On The Map by Joan Sweeny. It is easy and fun - yet really helps to solidify the bigger picture. We've read this a few times, talked about it and then Holly set to work creating her own little booklet of 'Holly On The Map'. It is done in layers starting with earth and working our way back to our home.

The layers are as follows:
  • Earth
  • North America
  • United States
  • Washington State
  • Puyallup Washington
  • My Home
She drew our her work and then colored them in! It was a fun little project that she really enjoyed creating!
