First-graders Build Their Own Towns

After considering what a community needs, our first-grade students in Little School each created a box town for a project called “Kidtown.” They identified the buildings needed in their neighborhood, built their own “home” (apartment or house) and any other buildings they felt were important, such as a school, grocery store, and police station. Before construction began, the students went on a variety of virtual field trips with people in the Englewood community (Englewood Hospital and the Englewood Police Department, to name a few) and gathered information about why these places are important in a community. With the help of cardboard boxes, glue, and paint — TA-DA! — Kidtown was created!
