Parents and Educators: find resources for at-home and distance learning

Green Mapping

Two 50-minute class periods

In this lesson, students learn how a green map can make visitors aware of the natural, cultural, and sustainability resources an area offers and help people gain a deeper understanding of a public space. They then apply what they've learned by working in small groups to create green maps of the school campus. The result is a series of green maps of campus that emphasize the assets and liabilities of the campus from the students' perspective. Students share their maps via a classroom Green Map Gallery Walk, in which they reflect on what they can learn from and appreciate about their classmates' maps. The lesson concludes with a conversation about how green maps can be used to increase the school community’s respect and appreciation for campus resources. Students also explore how the maps could be used as a tool to persuade school administrators to make improvements on campus.
