In social studies we often discuss communities and we begin with our homes. After giving a lesson on types of homes we discuss the kinds of homes in our neighborhood.
In this tree map students are using a word box to fill in the tree map. They will draw a picture of a two types of homes usually found in our neighborhood: house and apartment.
Students will then write a sentence about each type of home. I encourage them to think of ways the homes are different so they are also working on comparing and contrasting.
