Computer software learning activity. An animated know-the-neighborhood activity. Children learn about the community as they explore five different settings and create scenes with Sesame Street friends and familiar objects. Who's that downtown buying cookies in the bakery? Why, it's Cookie Monster! He and his Sesame Street pals are here to help children identify people, objects, and activities in various parts of a neighborhood. Children explore five different community locations by moving and placing animated, setting-appropriate community workers and objects. At the same time, they create colorful, musical, custom-made scenes with Big Bird, Grover, Oscar, and their other Sesame Street pals. In Sesame Street Pals Around Town, children have fun with familiar friends as they begin to recognize various community members and objects that are found in a Classroom, in a Schoolyard, on a bust Downtown Street, in Bert and Ernie's apartment, and, of course, on Sesame Street. Children select animated characters and objects to move and place in each scene, helping them learn who and what is usually found in each setting. The program also encourages them to think about the functions of these objects and the roles of community helpers as they create their own neighborhood scenes and make up stories. The accompanying manual includes step-by-step instructions. With lively colorful graphics and music, this delightful computer activity entertains as it enhances familiarity with the physical and social characteristics that make up a neighborhood. This product was developed by Children's Television Workshop, producers of Sesame Street, The Electric Company, 3-2-1 Contact and Square One TV. CTW software is designed to attract and hold children's interest, providing an environment in which they can grow and learn.
