First graders collaborated on a neighborhood project. After brainstorming a list of several items we might find in a neighborhood, each table section worked together to create a neighborhood within a city using pencils, crayons, colored pencils and permanent markers on 12" x 18" paper. Each paper within a table section (four papers together) is connected to the next with streets, so access can be gained to every home within the neighborhood.
