Adventure of the American Mind  

Transportation is one of the four units that are taught in the kindergarten curriculum in Cook County School District 130. Chicago transportation is a topic that I think will interest kindergartners in my district because they often take visits to Chicago. My kindergartners think that Chicago is far away from our school and actually it is only a few miles. This project will allow my students to be able to identify different methods of transportation and relate them to what they see everyday. It will also allow them to see some of the vehicles from the past that were documented in Chicago Daily newspaper and other available resources. We will explore transportation on all levels within the areas of language arts, math, and science. This is an adventure that will take the kids by the hand and embrace them with knowledge.
