We use words like "in" and "on" to describe where things are.
- Elementary school: Where's the ball? In the box.
- JHS 1st grade: Where's the book? It's by the box.
- JHS 2nd grade: There's a TV on the box. There are 2 CDs under the desk.
- Describing where things are can be slightly difficult, because it typically involves three words. For example, "The ball is on the box.
- "Where" is in the 7th grade textbook and typically taught then, but 5th and 6th graders can understand and do many similar activities.
- For JHS 2nd graders learning "there is" and "there are", describing the location of things is good practice. For example, students can write about the classroom or their own room.
