Learning about places in town is very important for kids as they grow up. First they can learn about their house and build their own mind maps to navigate through it. Then, as they become older and start to be more independent, it's really useful for their development to get to know the city they live in. Getting to know their city and how it's structured creates a sense of belonging and helps them tune their place awareness which in turn makes them grow more confident and cautious.
Also, by learning about places in town from an early age, kids start to develop their language skills because doing simple routines such as going to the supermarket or attending school becomes a practical way to go over the vocabulary related to buildings and their uses, all of this as they learn the importance these places have to the community
To practice this vocabulary, it's advised to stroll with your little ones through town and engage in a conversation about the places that you see, this way they'll start making those helpful associations between the city and its buildings.
Here you'll find some names of buildings that can be found in a city, as well as some activities and games to practice this topic with your children.
