Where Am I? My Place in Time and Space. First Grade Activity. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
In this activity, first grade students learn their addresses and their places in space. Each student pretends they are a student in Ms. Frizzle's class and are to help the class figure out how to get home. The students create their own intergalactic address book, so that on their next trip into the universe they will have a map to guide them back home. The activity plan details an eight step process for the student to conduct the activity. The plan contains 11 online resources; gives learning advice; discusses evaluation; presents concluding questions; offers reflection questions; and furnishes a relevant glossary. The teacher notes states a grade level; provides lesson purpose; addresses history/social studies and language arts standards; sets out specific educational goals and information literacy skills goals; notes resources or materials needed; lists additional Internet resources, as well as videos and books. It also gives background information that might be helpful; identifies interdisciplinary connections for language arts, mathematics, science, art, physical education; and suggests extension activities.
