Mapping the World with Mrs. Johnston's Class
Ms. Johnston's class visited the MakerStudio this week.  They were finishing up their Social Studies unit on maps.  Ms. Johnston wanted to see her students applied their knowledge about maps in the MakerStudio.  What was great about this activity was student were able to demonstrate their knowledge of maps in a hands-on method instead of just answering questions with paper and pencil.

The students first created maps using the interactive whiteboard in the classroom.  Printed copies were then provided to each student to add color using the markers.  In groups of three, students had to collaborate and choose 4-5 items from their maps to put on/make for their projects. They worked in groups to create 3D maps that had a compass rose and a key/legend.
