Artetc – Satellite Maps

Monday morning busied themselves reading and researching a country, Skye chose Italy and Poppy chose France in preparation for Artetc.

We took Skipper out for a quick walk and then arrived at Merrys in time for lunch πŸ™‚

Decided to round up the maps bit of artetc today as neither of us are feeling particularly inspired with it though today’s one went well.

They all chose a country, we printed off a traceable map showing population density, traced over it then transferred tracing paper onto black card, we only had dark red but still worked ok πŸ™‚ This produced an indent in the card, then carefully, following the population trends from their maps, dotted the map in white acrylic paint to represent lights, so the denser the population, the more white dots.

They all found and drew the flags to represent their chosen country and Skye and Poppy also added their lists of Places of Interest for their countries.

Think there was some Dr Who game going on which Skye and Fran opted out of and played Monopoly instead πŸ™‚

I did the dance run, taking all 6 girls with me on the proviso that they all bought books to read – which they did πŸ™‚

Once home, we all had dinner and then took Skipper out for a long walk. Really loving the warm evenings and I know the garden could do with rain but I don’t miss it! πŸ™‚
