The purpose of the lesson is to meet requirement K.4 of the California History Social Science Standards, to guide young children as they become aware of themselves in relation to the earth upon which they live, to develop a story which focuses the student's learning, and to learn to recite one's address. Language Arts Standards fulfilled are: (2.2) using pictures and context to make predictions about story content; (2.3) connecting to life experiences the information and events in text; (2.4) retelling familiar stories; and (2.5) asking and answering questions about essential elements of a text. Students gather information from books, videos, and the Internet about geography and talk to family members about their home. After gathering the information, students create pictures that represent their address and talk to their classmates about what makes their address unique. (DJ)
