The OUR LOCALITY poster project consists of two activity booklets containing 15 photocopyable cut-and-paste pages, and two posters, each consisting of two A3 sections, a top and a bottom.
The activities follow a cross curricular theme and could be attempted by any primary class group, depending on the level of expectation. Any activity could be expanded for greater depth of study or could accompany a series of photographs, drawings or a video of the locality.
In the Our Locality project the children present aspects of the local area in a project format. In all classes it is possible to include pictures of the area, physical features, other cultures and languages in the area, shopping in the area, things which can be seen from the school, flags typical of the locality, etc. High level classes could draw maps and plans of the area.
The children should be encouraged to work in teams on different aspects of the project thus building a class project.
If the school is on Internet, the children could publish their articles, photos or videos in the school blog, in a wiki or in the school web site.
