Are you joining me for the Mulberry Street Unit Study? Did you take your kidlets to explore your street, as suggested in the Mulberry Street Unity Study- Paper Tube Binoculars post? Now you can help them create their own My Street Journal!
It’s really simple. Provide each child with 3-4 pieces of blank paper, crayons, markers, or colored pencils, and a copy of the book for inspiration. Fold the papers in half and staple for binding. On each page have your child draw a picture of themselves and what they saw while they were walking down your street. Of course title it “And to Think That I Saw It On My Street. This may be too much for one day for younger ones, so this activity can easily be spread over several days.
You can also collect objects on your walk, like pinecones, sprigs of pine needles, acorns, or leaves, to help them remember their exploration when it is time to draw in their My Street Journal.
