This was one of those resources that was such a hit! It looks like something I would make myself (if I had more spare time!) and really linked so well with my program. Thanks for such a creative and engaging centre-based activity.

Cute activities! Wasn't able to use one of the activities because we don't use computers too much. Also, would be helpful to have a list of excellent picture books that goes along with rural/urban centers.

Great! It is one of my favourite parts of that unit, I find it kind of a 'dry' unit, so these centers help liven it up a little! :)

This is a fantastic resource for teaching urban and rural communities! I already have the paper copy but the digital version is far more useful.
On  October 28, 2012Tina's Teaching Treasures answered:
Hi Kathy! I'm glad you enjoy it!
I'm just curious how you obtained the paper copy without the digital? If you could send me an e-mail with more details that would be great thanks! :) tinasteachingtreasures@gmail.com

Hi Terri,

I teach Grade 3 French Immersion and bought your unit because I thought it would be great to adapt in French for my class. However, it's a PDF and I can't use the format and chage the information to French. Can you send me a copy that is not locked in PDF format please?

On  April 7, 2013Tina's Teaching Treasures answered:
Hi Kathleen,
I am not able to send it in an editable document because of copyright issues with the graphics.
Sorry about that! :)
-Tina
On  November 13, 2012Terri's Teaching Treasures (TpT Seller) asked:
Hi, Do you have a rubric for the foldable project? It would be really helpful to have one to assess such a big project. Thanks!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 13, 2012Tina's Teaching Treasures answered:
Hi Terri!
I don't usually use rubrics, we use co-created success criteria and level based on that :). I would look for things like:
-Includes an appropriate example of each type of community
-pictures are relevant to the type of community
-Sentence explains the key elements of the type of community

Hope that helps! :)
