This tutorial encourages children to explore and record their local heritage by taking a walk locally and making a 3D map of what they have seen.
Úna constructs a 3D map of her walk along the Barrow towpath using natural materials in the garden and then her son Michael shows a Lego 3D map of the same area. Children are challenged to create a 3D map of their favourite walk.
Suited to children of all ages.
Materials: Natural materials such as leaves, twigs and stones or toys or household objects.
