Preschool Map-making

Drawing can be used as a tool to learn about our surroundings.

The preschoolers can be seen here making a map of the area – a collaborative project that involved many discoveries. Children included play areas, houses, apartment buildings, schools, and other landmarks with meaning for them.

Learning along the way: Communication, visual-spatial skills, drawing-as-representation, map vocabulary and concepts, neighbourhood familiarity

  1. will these projects be REVISITED?

    • Great question – absolutely.
      Teachers regularly discuss ways to follow up on ideas, and you can expect to see some continued threads appear on this blog over the next months.
