Where do I live?

As I wrapped up our Social Studies: Expanding Horizons unit with Goofy (Kindergarten) I found this nifty idea from Counting Coconuts. We had already read through Me on the Map and Where do I Live , but this was a great visual & the perfect way to wrap things up!
Social Studies: Expanding Horizons unit - such a fun hands on project with FREE template to help kids understand where they live in their street, city, state, country, continent, planet (kindergarten, expanding horizons)

Our Where do I live project was the perfect way for my Kindergartner to visualize our Expanding Horizons unit in Homeschool Social Studies.
