Recently, the children of the Sky Class embarked on their first walking trip. They did not venture far, as it was more of an opportunity to notice the surrounding area in greater detail.
As a part of a study of the city, the children spent time taking a closer look at the different kind of buildings that surround Church Square Park.
“This is a building for kids and teachers.”
“I see the library, there are children’s books in there and you can read them! There are statues and an owl on the building.”
Businesses, restaurants, homes, schools, a church, a hospital, a library, and even a pet groomer were some of the many buildings that the children noticed on our trip around the block. The children examined the buildings looking for clues that would tell them what the building was used for.
“I noticed the hospital over there where people get healed if they are sick!”
“I see a door; it’s high up on the building so you can look out at the city.”
As the class continues its study of cities, the children will explore the varied buildings that make up cities, as well as many other aspects that makes cities unique.
