I have always used a Me on the Map flipbook to help my students understand the concept of “Where do I live?” I felt they needed more practice to really get a great grasp of the concept of “Where in the world do I live?” so these fun centers were also created.
Bonus – The “state” and “town” sections are EDITABLE to type in your own state and town names.
Here is what is included:
* “Where in the World Do I Live (Me on the Map) flipbook (blank versions and with clipart of planet, continent, country and states pages are included) (each state’s clipart is included)
* Match It Up (state and town portions are editable) (printouts of all 50 states in miniature version are included for you to glue onto this puzzle)
* Sequence and Match (Largest/Planet to Smallest/Town – also editable)
* Match It Puzzle Mat (state and town portions are editable)
After reading “Armadillo from Amarillo” by Lynne Cherry, my students complete the flipbook. It makes a great display!
Match It Up, Sequence and Match and the Match It Puzzle Mat and Pieces make great centers for practice for your early finishers, the whole class or for those that are struggling with the concept. You could also use some of these activities as a quiz when finishing this mini-unit.
