 Using Maps and Globes

Let’s Travel Around the World - Dramatic Play 


The children are really loving this theme. I hear them taking what they have learned to the Learning Centers. As they are packing, using the map, at the World Market and more. I love listening to them. It is music to my ears when I hear them talking about what they have learned.❤️


World Art

After hands on discovery with the globe the children were very interested in World Art. After art I put the inspiration photo in the Science Center. They visit the Science Center and continue to review and enjoy what they have learned about during the month.

The Book and Story Pieces are Amazing. This book is about taking a trip to the natural and man-made wonders of the world. This book features the same places the children have been learning about all month. The children enjoy the book and story pieces in Library Center as well.


Around the World Game

The children really love all the games from MGT. They love using the little people game pieces. Around the World Game has been one of their favorites.

Our Travel Tools

Taking Our Suitcases 

The children loved making their suitcases. They especially enjoyed drawing what they would take on their trip. The girls seemed to be very detailed with what they would take. They were discussing what clothes and shoes. I heard some children talking about what toys or what stuffed animals. It was very interesting. 😊


Thoughtful Bracelets

I asked the children what it means to be thoughtful. Some children said helping others. Some said doing chores. We also discussed different ways to be thoughtful. Each child received a friend’s name. I heard some say “This isn’t my name”.  I explained that they were going to be thoughtful and give that friend a bracelet. They enjoyed this activity a lot. ❤️

Travel Designs

The children really enjoyed creating their own vehicle designs. They were very interested in doing this activity especially since we have been learning about Travel.

Matching Suitcases

The children loved this suitcase matching game. Especially after making their own suitcases. They are really loving this theme .

I Spy Glass

All the children stop by this center to investigate. They enjoy looking through the I spy 🕵️‍♀️ Glass and searching for the answers to the questions. 

Circle Time - It’s a Small World 

The children love Circle Time. They love everything that we are learning about Travel as well.

Journal Time - Travel Journal 


The children drew boats on the covers of their journals. The children love drawing, writing and tracing in their journals. We have journals in the writing center for learning center time.

We also have large group Journal Time.
