BASEBALL LACING

An early form of baseball was first played in England. As English settlers arrived in the New World, the sport was brought with them and over time evolved into the sport that is played today. Baseball is known as the great American past time and is played by people of all ages across the country. The Cincinnati Red Stockings were the first professional baseball team established in 1869.Later, members of this team would go on to form the Atlanta Braves. Many famous players have taken the field including Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Barry Bonds, Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio!

Using a paper or styrofoam plate and red yarn, practice your sewing skills to lace up your own baseball.

COMMUNITY HELPER PUPPETS

A community is a place where people live, work, and play together. A community also includes a diverse set of people who have joined together through a common interest or goal. Communities will create feelings of fellowship based on these particular interests, goals, or other shared characteristics. In all communities, there are not only people who interact daily, but also the buildings that meet the needs of those people including homes, businesses, playgrounds, schools, and grocery stores. There are important community helpers, such as police, firefighters, teachers, dentists, chefs, and more. All the people within the community work together to ensure the wellbeing of each other – safety, health and happiness.

Cartography is the science and practice of making maps. People have been making maps of their world for generations. Maps help us to better understand the geography of the world as well as to find important places we want to visit in our community. During the 1800s, maps were made to understand the borders of different land grants and homesteads in Texas.

Make a map of your neighborhood using supplies. For more fun, create a new world and make a map for it or make a pirate treasure map and go looking for gold!

VICTORY GARDENS

During WWII, food and other materials were strictly rationed to ensure everyone got a fair share and there was plenty to be sent to those fighting overseas. To help with food supplies, people began growing vegetables at home. Gardens could be found in front and back yards and even in boxes in windows of homes without yards. The gardens came to be called victory gardens because the vegetables grown at home by families allowed more of the crops from farms to be sent to Europe and the Pacific during the war.

Plant your own victory garden at home with your favorite vegetables!
