Public Officials - Putting it All Together


Getting the first grade kiddos to begin to formulate an understanding of public officials and who leads what can be challenging to say the least! I decided this year to have my students put it all together on a tree-map. I passed out a photo or label to each student and challenged the students to put the cards in the correct places. It went relatively quickly, and it was interesting listening to the conversations as the kids made decisions about where to place the cards.

  1. I like this! I must ask, do you guys use CSCOPE? You are the only other 1st grade teacher that has used "public officials" which is the exact verb-age!
