I started a series of posts recently called Geography Projects from A to Z that goes along with the book Geography from A to Z by Jack Knowlton. So far we have done Atoll & Archipelago as well as Beach & Bay. Check them out- they were really fun projects. Today I have some geography nesting cans to tell you about. You will LOVE these!
This month we decided to do a geography project that is a little different but I still thought it went along well with the series. It was a blast and the kids really enjoyed it. We made Geography Nesting Cans based on the book Me on the Map by Joan Sweeny. If you haven’t seen this book, or the others in the series, I highly recommend looking into them! They are so much fun & teach a lot in a fun way.
Geography Nesting Cans with Me on the Map
The largest can we used was a formula can and showed our earth. Then we used cans that got smaller in diameter and fit inside of one another. Finally they drew a map of their room and put it inside the can of their house.
This is Day 5 of the Teaching Creatively Blog Cruise from the Schoolhouse Review Crew. Check out all of the other great ideas shared below. I hope you have enjoyed this series- it’s been fun to participate!!
