Our Freebie: My Place in My World Flipbook
Lay the foundation for global learning and citizenship with our engaging and interactive geography flipbook for young explorers.
Starting from the concrete (their home) and moving to the abstract (our solar system), students develop an understanding of the world and their place in it.
No Prep! Just print, cut, and staple across the top. Keep it handy to use as a resource all year long!
Students enter the street number and street name of their home (include an apartment number, if applicable). The illustration can show the inside or outside of their home.
Students enter the name of their city. The illustration can show any elements that define their city: parks, stores, streets, buildings, etc.
Students enter the name of their state and color it on the map. Illustrations of state symbols can be added around the page.
Students enter the name of their country and color it on the map. Illustrations of country symbols can be added around the page.
Students enter the name of their country and color their continent on the map. Illustrations that represent the continent can be added around the page.
Students enter the name of their planet and color the solar system map – highlighting Earth.
Students put it all together by filling in the blanks. Great for a pre/post-assessment.
Students can refer to this page as a resource all year long!
By developing a sense of place, children can begin to understand and build their relationships with other people and the environment.
