Vision Mapping of a Sensory Kind in Makarora

After my year summary meeting at Hawea Flat school I headed up the road to Makarora for the afternoon. Makarora are a fairly new Enviroschool and are really embracing the program.

They've made a vision map and are slowly but surely starting to add to their pool of knowledge. One of the areas they really want to improve are the school grounds. So we set about recording some of the more sensory features of the school grounds.

What kind of colours are out there? Where is shady or sunny? Where does it smell good or bad? How do we record these things on the vision map anyway? The children soon figured out a pretty cool key to show these different features and after a bit of an explore around the grounds came back inside to add them to the map.
