This hands-on geography project "My Place in the World" has kids create a visual representation of how we fit into the world. Teachers often use it with the kids' geography book "Me on the Map," by Joan Sweeney. Ideal for integrated Social Studies, ELA, Geography, Literacy, and Map Skills.

Using a series of nesting circles to show the relative sizes of different geographic places, this simple but effective geography lesson helps kids sort out their relation to one another.

This activity includes:

- a series of pre-labeled concentric circles for kids to cut out and decorate

- a series of unlabeled concentric circles for kids to cut out, label, and decorate

- a series of maps (see below!) that kids can cut out and use, or use as a reference in drawing their own geographic locations

In this unique geography craft, students will:

- cut out circles

- draw pictures for "My house," "My city"

- color in the provided maps for "My state," "My country," "My continent," and "My planet."

- connect them with a brad or ring in order from smallest to largest

This set includes outline maps for all provinces and states in the UK, Australia, United States, and Canada. It can be easily adjusted for any location in the world. It can be used in a community unit, a social studies class, a foreign language or ESL class, or a lesson as children are learning their personal information.

This is a craftivity that works with interactive notebooks, lapbooks, bulletin boards, as a stand alone flip book.
