Designing a Community!
Second graders are learning about communities throughout the year, so we started out by designing some communities. The children first drew pictures of places for people to live, work, play and solve problems. Then they talked together to decide where to locate those elements. Finally, they'll add some important details such as roads and people. They are very excited about this cooperative learning project!
