Integrate geography, math, and writing activities using Edith Baer's book, This Is the Way We Go to School.
Students learn about the different ways kids around the world go to school, and use a world map to locate each place. The class creates a tally chart and a bar graph to show how they all get to school. Questions for analyzing the data are included. Students complete a descriptive writing prompt sharing a new way to get to school - fun for sharing and/or making a class book.
