Reflection: Journaling Making a Map From Our Own Model Islands - Section 4: Creating the Maps


Even though I stressed that the students needed to draw their islands large, several of them still drew them too small.  I was able to catch their mistake early in the process, since I was walking around checking.  Next time I will show them a sample island that is drawn too small so they can see why size is important.  If it still happens, erasers work magically!
