Mapping Connections

For Stage 3 students, coupling digital technologies with a text study of the Wings of Fire series would enable students to create their own map of the landscape drawing upon descriptions in the text. Students can draw from the graphic novels, audio books or printed texts to enrich their shared understanding. Using Azgaar fantasy map tool, students can bring aspects of the story to life while developing digital skills. Through documentation, students can report on the process, sources, challenges and short-comings of their map. Students can also document their understanding of how the author includes landscape features to ground the characters in their own world. The digital mapping skills will allow students to then have critical skills to evaluate real world maps and the challenges of accuracy with simplicity.
