First Graders Turned Contractors

First Graders Turned Contractors thumbnail177521

Centre Avenue first graders in Mrs. Mary Arapas’ class transformed into architects and contractors by building the community of East Rockaway.

To kick off their project, students learned that communities are places where people live, work and play. They then constructed buildings and places that are within the East Rockaway community. By using crayons, markers, cut outs and brown paper bags, they crafted banks, hospitals, bakeries and more. Students had fun bringing these locations to life.
