Our Cycle 1 students continue their study of Technology and mapping. Students have been looking at magnets and the magnetic force around the earth including the cardinal directions North, South, East, West. They then explored the way structures, buildings and houses are mapped. Students were asked to imagine they were a giant who had taken the roof off the classroom and then describe the space from that perspective. Students drafted a map of their classroom and the school before making a 3D map which included all classrooms, the playground, trees (including a nest), bushland area and school carpark. There was considerable discussion about the correct orientation of buildings and bushland!
