The Kindergarten Homes Unit

This winter, the Kindergartners engaged in the study of homes. After establishing the definition of a home, they investigated the styles and materials used to meet the need for shelter around the world. They also reflected on their own homes, inside and out. Our classroom resources and discussions helped the children's understanding about the process of home construction. In order to synthesize all that they had learned over the course of the study, the children were asked to create a model home. As one can see from the examples of their work, the unit was not only a tremendous learning experience, but also a lot of fun.
