ECI 524 EXTENSION ACTIVITY 1 CHILDREN'S MAP COMPETITION Tonya Webber 1-14-2010 GOALS FOR THIS LESSON… How do these maps represent different ways of learning about the world? How do they help understand the world? ARGENTINA It is amazing to me how each country in the world is so different but yet many of us look at views about the world the same way. In this picture you can see young children from different cultures holding onto the world from an evil force. They are working together to stop something bad from happening. What I like about his is even though the kids are all different they are working together. HUNGRY “ All we need is love,” is what the Beatles said…right? Well in this picture that shows. There are children from different places drawn in the heart. Inside that heart is our combined passion, our world. We must love what we have regardless of how we live or who we are! INDONESIA What a beautiful picture! This picture to me represents just how beautiful the world is. The mountains, the ocean, the trees, the animals. All of these things work together to create our planet. I think this picture represents how we much cherish the place we live and the animals we share it with. ISRAEL I think looking at this picture the boy who drew it is showing us that WE are the world. If we don’t take care of it, it will not be here. WE are the ones who are responsible for how clean it is and the problems than happen. Each person must do their job to pitch in and help. We only have this world and we need to take care of it! ITALY These children are trying to piece together a ripped up page. They are using some kid of glue to put the pieces together. This shows hard work of rebuilding relationships a cross the world within different cultures. JAPAN This picture from Japan is asking for peace back. This child wants the war to end and people to love each other. I like the way he used different countries flags for the border. That shows to me that everyone should unite and learn to love one another. I think the color countries are the ones that have the flags on the border. QATAR What a beautifully drawn picture! People from different countries holding up a balloon with their country on it. What is common about all of these balloons is the saying, “ Different cultures, one world.” What a beautiful saying! We are all different cultures but we only have one world we must share. Take a look at the people, they are holding hands. They think it is important to join together to celebrate our one world and take care of it! SOLVAK REPUBLIC Six children all holding up one thing that they all have in common; our world! I think the clear water, sunny sky, green grass and blooming flowers represent the happiness of this picture. I feel putting the war and all the hatred behind us we could take a look at this wonder that this world has to offer! SOUTH AFRICA What a unique picture! This puzzle is put together now, but if we take it apart it wouldn’t be the same. Four different countries are represented here that all want a piece of the cake! I think the puzzle is symbolic to the nature of we are one! We all hold a slice to that cake and a piece to the puzzle. We have to work together to keep the puzzle intact otherwise it would just fall apart. UNITED KINGDOM “One Earth, one chance,” is the theme to this picture. We do have one Earth and we do have one chance. What is going to be your stamp on your chance of this world is what I feel this picture represents.
