Have you ever read the book Me on the Map by Joan Sweeny? It’s a favorite of mine. To go along with that book, I want to share a fun geography nesting cans project. You will LOVE these! They are the perfect way to help kids begin to grasp geography concepts.
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.
How to Make Me On the Map Nesting Cans
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.
