Activity: Placing Your School On A Map
Choose a school location that actually exists on a map within a geographical location. Create your own custom map of where you would like your school to be (we originally used Google Maps for this activity). Write a statement of reason for your selection. Once that’s done, create a proposed design layout of your school (we originally used Google Drive Drawing). Break the design down into parts and identify the philosophy of the design.
If possible, find 1 or 2 peers to look at your map. Is the location you picked ideal? Why or why not?
