The beauty of Gee Whiz is that we provide a foundation of experiences upon which you can, and should, build. If you were going to add an experience to the unit, "My Home. Your Home.", which one of the following do you think would be the best choice?
Providing empty food boxes the children can use to build their own homes.
Going on a walk in the neighborhood looking for animal homes (e.g., bird nest).

All of the above are examples of experiences that would be great for this unit.
