When I saw this fantastic idea on Counting Coconuts a while back I knew we had to make one for ourselves.
I started off making six circles out of craft foam using a compass.
I found almost all of the images on Google Images. L colored this picture of the Earth and then stuck the stars on for space.
I traced the continent onto orange paper and L pin punched it out.
For my province we talked about different things we see and do here. I printed off the images and L colored them.
We also did circles for my town and my house. I took pictures of L by different places and then printed them out.
Once all the circles were completed I punched a hole in the top of them and put a ring through them.
I really love this activity. It's a great way for children to narrow down their place on the map and also a wonderful keepsake. Thanks again Counting Coconuts for the great idea!
