This is another one of my favorite books to share during our back to school activities.
This is the Way We Go to School – A Book About Children Around the World by Edith Baer is a fun, rhyming book that shows how children from different countries go to school. Taking a ferry, riding a trolley car, flying in a helicopter are just some of the ways that are described – and beautifully illustrated.
Geared for the primary grades, this book introduces young children to countries around the world (a map is included in the book) and teaches them that while children all over the world go to school, the way they get there can be very different.
Check out my free LESSON PLAN for using this book in your classroom. It includes a class graphing activity to find out how your students get to school.
