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.
Me on the Map talks about all of the different places we live. It starts with earth, then shows continents, countries, states, cities, streets, house and then our own room. To represent this we made cans representing them. Each can we covered with a paper that the kids colored to show where they live. We taped them on with packing tape and put some printed scrapbook papers behind them to cover the rest of the can.
We found where we lived on various maps, too. We looked at a world map and a globe to find our continent and country. Then we looked at a country map to find our state. To find out city maps we looked at Google Maps- then we could even see our houses on the map!
