“Like in the city? There’s museums and stores and my home, and us” -Luke M.
Jumping off from the past two weeks, our exploration of Cities has become more concentrated on the people and places we know in the city. This week we were curiously exploring the concept of community. Pre-K understandings of community grow from their direct experiences in and around the city.
Some of our current questions and curiosities include:
Is everything in the city our community?
Is our class the same as our community?
How do we show our community we appreciate them?
The children began drawing pictures of their friends, teachers and their favorite places in the city.
