Mapping: Ratio and Proportion in Art and Math

Map making through history was used as inspiration for our maps of Camp Brewster prairie. Groups were given a toolkit containing a compass, measuring tape, twine and craft sticks. They laid out a grid and each drew the contents of six squares in a ratio of 1:4.
Individual maps were assembled to create a map of the entire group grid.
After looking at the miraculous creatures that medieval map makers added to their maps "at the ends of the earth" participants each created their own imaginary creatures from cut paper.

Creatures were added to their maps around the edges.
