GC411 – Life-Size Simulations – Floor-Size Concept Mapping Lesson Review
GC411-S4 – Floor-Size Concept Map Lesson Review – A large cafeteria or conference room may be used to complete this assignment.) Using a four-step process, individually, with a partner, small group or class, Alexa or Instructor will guide students to develop life-size maps, using the lesson topics or focus questions provided. First, the topic or question will be inserted into a large map circle on the floor, created from poster board and adhered with one inch blue tape. Students will generate major key points (sub-topic links) and additional details using smaller sizes of poster board. Wide strip blue tape will link the boards to each other. Linking words will be written on the tape, to create full sentences. Last, after taking an approved picture of their completed map, the key points and details of all maps will be compiled into key point and detail piles. Each pile will be shuffled like a deck of cards with all students receiving a map piece. Each student will tour the different maps and attach the appropriate key point to the appropriate map. Then, another student tour will be conducted to attach the proper details to the appropriate map.
