Maps!

and other map-like things.





















The concepts the children seemed to connect most with were:
  • how do you get from one place to another?
  • what is a map for?
  • what do you see on the way to school?
The inspiration comes from observing the children with maps in the classroom, and from here. I was really struck by the dominoes, and how they looked like a trail or a road.

On an unrelated-to-the-classroom note, just the word "maps" makes me think of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Which in turn reminds me that Karen O wrote most of the soundtrack for Where The Wild Things Are. October cannot come soon enough.
