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.
