Log in to Reply Teacher Tom on May 13, 2011 at 5:45 pm Did you start with the question: “What if you could make your own world?” It’s a wonderful exploration you’ve documented here. I’d love to know more about the process. Log in to Reply Maureen on May 14, 2011 at 5:12 pm Delightful – as always! What a lovely thing for children to imagine – a world of their own.

The thread of mapping permeated this class, and an architect was brought in to show blueprints, a parent organized a visit to The Library of Congress to the mapping room, and alongside all the other things that a year brings, mapping just spontaneously happened. I started this idea after the field trip. The first question I asked was “What is a globe.” From there I asked “What if you could make your own globe or world?” There was a great richness and deepness to this project because of their prior experiences and wonderings throughout the year.
