The Polk Street kids visit the Big Apple! This 11 page document includes a title page, teaching suggestions, a min- 8 page booklet (made from 4 pages copied back to back and stapled), an answer key, and credits page to use with the book “Next Stop, New York City!”
The first page of the booklet invites the child to share what they already know about New York City and the last page is a mini-research project to extend the study. Students will look at flags of many countries in an almanac or encyclopedia, then draw and describe two of their favorites.
The 4 pages to be copied for each child can be copied without color ink. (My school is probably like yours… stingy with color ink due to lack of funds.) If you are also interested in “Look Out Washington, D.C.!” look for my unit “Polk Street Kids on Tour” which combines both units for a reduced price.
