Me on the Map

Imagine a group of young designers and realtors all plotting and planning.  That’s was what Me on the Map was like in session.  A group of people called Me on the Map came in and led us through a few engaging activities that included working in groups to vote for favourite buildings using 3-D objects to make the buildings.  They even made rating cards by surveying people!

The space in question was by Trillium turf fields, down by the train station.  It was a scenario in which we decided what could go there.


The presenters were committed, enthusiastic and happy to work with us.  I found the activities fun, and from that experience I know what designing feels like. I would love doing the activities again.  From those who were in our class two years ago like me, they enjoyed doing a similar activity in which we made our own city and our own buildings like art galleries, saw mills and five departments.  I hope that other schools will have an opportunity to do these things and learn to enjoy how fun these people and activities are.

The zoo on the map was exciting!  I liked the library on the map.  I joined a group and together we constructed a map outline.  Before the map presentation we coloured our own individual maps and hung them up in the classroom.  We glued map icons on to our own maps.  I liked the drawings on the map.  I liked the luxury condo on the map.
