Community Arts Projects

Youngsters learn about community through exploration of their own neighborhood.In this activity about community, students create a community in their classroom. Students think about what their community looks like by making a map. Students create a class newspaper to understand how people in the community get information. Students are challenged in multiple disciplines including social studies, language arts, and art, as they go through six activities to create their class community.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
