Kids learn social studies skills by thinking about land, sea, air and space travel with this interactive art project.
Kids think about land, sea, air and space travel with this interactive art project.
If they are able, let kids do all the tracing, cutting, assembly and drawing. An adult needs to help by making a hole for the brad.
Have your child draw land shapes on the smallest blue circle to represent earth (for my kindergarten class, I just preprinted a globe). Then draw land and sea transportation on this layer.
Now have them draw different modes of air travel on the larger blue circle, and different modes of space travel on the black circle. Use a black marker or pencil to draw the outlines on the blue paper, and use a white pencil to draw the outlines on the black paper. Then fill them in with colored pencils. Kids can use their imaginations to come up with different modes of travel. If they get stuck, I’ve created a page of simple vehicle icons that kids can copy.
On the very back piece of paper, have kids draw a moon and some stars. Now they can spin the circles and watch their drawings fly around the world.
