Part 1, Activity 5
Mapping our World
Mapping Our World invites students to compare different methods of converting our 3D world into a 2D map, and to explore how these different portrayals can have much greater effects on our way of thinking and conceptualising the world around us.
Aim: To encourage critical thinking about the ways maps represent the world and influence our perceptions, and to develop skills in using the internet as a source of information.
