“Be Your Own GPS and Go Everywhere: Practice a Unique Life Skill”

Participants will be introduced to a method for visualizing places far and near, later to be actually mapped. Students will learn to “see” maps on any surface: a screen, hand, body, tabletop, floor, yard, playground.

Class Experience

Students will have a solid knowledge of the cardinal and ordinal directions and how to use these compass points to orient themselves to places near and far. 

Participants will also be introduced to a method of using their awareness of compass points to visualize, move about and later transpose to physical maps of places locally to globally. Practiced and mastered this becomes an invaluable life skill
Several sheets of blank paper, pencil, markers etc. Not required but useful a map of the USA and a compass. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
