Special Places- Pre-primary/Year 1

Why a place is special

The concept of the class making an ABC of Fremantle places was chosen as the way to make mapping accesssible to this age group.

The children were scaffolded in their development of the concept of sustainability and "hotspots" by working with known and familiar Fremantle locations. Each child researched their chosen location answering questions about the significance of the place to themselves, their families and Fremantle.

This research project was a take-home project completed with parent support. The completed reports and photos were then located on a wall map of Fremantle. The reports were also compiled into an ABC PowerPoint of Fremantle.
