Our Portland: Collaborative mapping with Ainsworth Students

In December, I collaborated with two classes of second grade students at Ainsworth Elementary to create a collective fabric map of Portland. The project began with each student drawing their own map of Portland. I transferred a piece of each of their maps onto fabric and then had them each add their piece to a large collective map. They also drew pictures and wrote stories about important Portland places that will be added around the map to create a final fabric piece to be auctioned in March.
