Teddy’s Travels

 

Sharing a family activity builds community.

Our Social Studies topic “My Family” gave rise to a wonderful community building activity.

We had a classroom teddy travel to all the families in our classroom.  Teddy was accompanied with a journal and a disposable camera.  The students wrote about Teddy’s adventures at their house focusing on the responsibilities of each family member.  Parents were asked to take a picture of Teddy and their child in their child’s favourite part of the house.

Through the journal we were able to have an idea of one another’s home life; with the pictures we were able to actually see each others “special place”.
