Second Grade Roxaboxen Communities

To wrap a unit on Communities second graders created their own Roxaboxen communities based on the book Roxaboxen written by Barbara Cooney.  Students worked in groups to create the communities.  Each community consists of roads, homes, businesses and even a Town Hall.  Stop by and visit these little towns anytime in the 2nd grade hall.

Overview of Roxaboxen as it appears on Amazon.com:

Marian called it Roxaboxen. (She always knew the name of everything.) There across the road, it looked like any rocky hill -- nothing but sand and rocks, some old wooden boxes, cactus and greasewood and thorny ocotillo -- but it was a special place: a sparkling world of jeweled homes, streets edged with the whitest stones, and two ice cream shops. Come with us there, where all you need to gallop fast and free is a long stick and a soaring imagination.

In glowing desert hues, artist Barbara Cooney has caught the magic of Alice McLerran's treasured land of Roxaboxen -- a place that really was, and, once you've been there, always is.

This activity included a picture sort of pictures from all over Utah
where we discovered Utah's three regions, the Rocky Mountain, Colorado
Plateau, and Great Basin regions. We decided that we live mostly in
the Great Basin region, but awfully close to the Rocky Mountain
region. All we have to do is drive a little bit up the canyon!
