Map Project

Students are still working on the map project and it’s taking some time.  The maps are huge but, I can see a lot of really interesting ideas emerging.  Every student has taken a different take on the project.  Some are being more conceptual about their ideas, while others are finding it extremely important to make a fairly realistic map. Here is a small sampling of “Mapping our Memories:  A conceptual map”.

Heart map
This student chose to start with a heart outline and created a map in the center.
Mexico map
This student is working on a map of Mexico. He’s doing a great job re-creating the country outline. But also writing in important cities that matter to him.

This student has started a drawing showing movement. If you look closely, you can see how the objects get bigger as they move closer.

Another student is using realistic maps as a starting point. He’s currently adding on symbols around the country that represent important events to him.
