DOI go Map-Tastic

All Y7 are receiving this week their gift from the Department of Infrastructure – a brand new 1:25,000 map of the Isle of Man.

This is provided each year for Y7 students in all the island schools, and it is used straight away with SNHS geographers to create a project between now and Christmas called the ‘My Patch’ project, where students use maps, photos and other evidence such as fieldsketches to show geographical and mapping skills needed to describe their ‘patch’- the location and features of their home and surrounding area. The maps are then kept by the students to make reference to throughout their geography learning career!

Many thanks to the DOI for supplying the maps for our students to use.
