What to do
Talk to the children about different types of homes. Explain that some people have family members that live in other countries, and sometimes they have homes that are very different to our own.
Share the pictures of the different types of homes from around the world. Help the children to compare and contrast the homes in the pictures with the ones that they are familiar with.
Invite the children to make a model home of their choice, using all the materials that are available to them.
