                       FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL: A school tour
  
  Author: Unknown.

  Level: K-6 (may be modified for higher grades)
  

  TEACHER'S NOTE: Every year on the first day of school, I take my
  class on a tour. 

  Procedure: 

  1) After morning business, tell the class they will be taking a
  tour of their new school. 

  2) Invite the parents (If Kindergaten class) to join you,
  and off you go.

  3) Start out by visiting the office to meet the secretary
  and the principal.

  4) Take polaroid pictures of everyone you meet along the tour.

  TEACHER'S NOTE: We visit the library, the computer center,
  the cafeteria, the playground and even the bathrooms.

  5) When you return to your classroom, make a book
  (in the shape of a schoolhouse if you like), with the pictures.

  6) Heave the kids help to dictate the text about each person who
  works at your school. 

  TEACHER'S NOTE: It is fun, easy and really helps the kids (and
  their parents) learn about the school.
