A City is A Place with Voices-In Rome you long for the country; in the country - oh inconstant! - you praise the distant city to the stars. ~Horace, Satires

One of the most reoccurring interests in our schools is the City . The sounds, the buildings, the hustle and bustle captivates the children. Taylor aged 4 (the child in these photos) had some interesting theories on city life.

"A city has voices, lots of voices. People moving everywhere. There are lots of cars and buses and office buildings where people go to work. There are banks where they keep all the money. There are tall buildings but no houses. People don't live in cities just work there. The best part is the sky scrapers. Those are the building that touch the clouds! And one more thing there are no trees in the city, none!"

  1. This is a great project, as the children can learn the differences of the country life and the city life. When they will go to the city they will know what to find there.~Sabrina
