Mapping in Three Dimensions
I love getting caught in webs of ideas like this. I know that after the inquiry has gone on for a while, and I have a big pile of drawings and photographs and childrens words, I will find some kind of an answer for myself.
In the meantime, here are some pictures of a map that has grown up from the table, from a drawing into a 3 dimensional representation of our forest. Nolan and Isabel are very familiar with this place because their class goes outside every day. Their intimate relationship with our forest, including the labyrinth, pavilion and creek show in these built 'maps'.
