PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Homes by Tinybop invites children to explore the world around them by visiting different houses in Guatemala, Mongolia, Yemen, and the United States. Each home is unique in structure and style, responding to the people and place where it was built. But, no matter where in the world we live, we all have the same basic needs and enjoy similar activities.

This activity, inspired by the House & Home exhibit at the National Building Museum, encourages kids to identify similarities and differences across homes by using their own house and experiences as a point of comparison.

Help your students spot unique objects in Homes and compare these to favorite objects in your household. Use the spaces within the homes app to sketch or list objects within different types of homes that people use to cook, play, and clean with. As the House & Home exhibit reminds us, it’s the objects within houses that tell stories and make them a home.

You need:
1) Homes activity #1 (print it!)
2) Drawing utensils: pencils, markers, or crayons
3) Homes app by Tinybop
