In this workshop, the first of four focusing on our home environments, we will ask students to think about their neighborhood. What does your street look like? Are there multiple houses or apartments? Can you walk or bike to nearby places? Is there a park or greenspace nearby? How is your neighborhood connected to the rest of your town? Students will study their neighborhood and answer these questions by making a series of “mental maps”.
