Social Studies in the Street.

 In the  Social Studies class, children are learning how to say in English the public places of a  city, and in order to make learning significant  to  children, they began to draw a map of an imaginary city. It was then when  the possibility that children also learnt  to locate those places in their everyday environment was posed. With the help of a map  and collaboration of parents, children took a walk through the neighborhood trying to locate on the map the places we are working in class, the names of the streets...
This activity is the result of dialogue between  all those involved in the teaching and learning of children, who are children themselves, teachers and families. The result is very positive from the educational point of view, since learning can never be as significant  as when an activity is contextualized and is also useful in real life.
