To prep the activity, I used the directions written on each page of the craftivity (below) to print the sheets on different colors.
The “Me” circle was purple, the “street” was blue…
Then, I grabbed scissors, a hole punch, brad and crayons we would need to complete the project.
Me on the Map
I introduced the activity by reading the book Me on the Map (found on Amazon HERE). Then, I explained that we were going to find out where WE were on the map!
Big Brother (age 7) began coloring one of the boy pictures to match himself.
Then, he carefully cut around the outside edge of the picture and placed it off to the side.
After cutting out each circle, we worked together to label the parts. “My country” was the USA, “my state” was Washington…
We stacked the circles on top of each other and aligned them at the top so that we could easily punch a hole through all eight parts at the same time.
Then, we bound them together with a simple brad and viola! Big Brother could easily see HIS place on the map!
