Oh, the places you'll go!

In honor of Dr. Suess' birthday on March 2, we read his book, "Oh, the places you'll go!" and began our unit on travel. 

First graders made paintings of where they would like to go (nature, landmarks (famous places), or familiar places (like visiting family). 

 Next they did collage paintings of how they would get there. They designed their own vehicles making decisions like how many people it could carry to what type of terrain it could travel in...  
Finally they packed their bags. What do you bring when you travel? First you have to consider where you are going (is it hot or cold...what will I need while I'm there, what do I need to bring when I spend the night; pjs, toothbrush, etc.)
