Community Map made by Preschoolers

What made this map so fun for the preschoolers is that they decided exactly how to design it!  Using a large piece of paper-big enough for all the kids to draw on, the teacher takes a marker in hand, and starts at the bottom middle.  “We are making the roads” she says, “Which direction do you want the road to go?”  If you look closely at the picture, you’ll see how the kids really started to have some fun with it!  Up and down, right and left, zigzag, straight, and even traffic circles were asked for!  Once the roads were all connected, the children got to draw all the other features of a community, including people, buildings, plants, vehicles, and even a big fire for the firefighters to put out!
