K-1 Combo Classes Create Communities
Students in our K-1 combination classes created their own communities recently. They learned that communities can be described with size, location, leadership, and symbols. Students worked in small groups to decide how those characteristics would be represented for their community. They focused on values to generate symbols, used square counters for the size, identified a leader, and learned directions from the compass rose for their location. Finally, they built a small model from various material choices for display.
