Students are challenged to look at maps from an artistic perspective by investigating several examples that go outside the standard geographical use of a map. This lesson starts with investigating symbols, to thinking about personal places of experience and interest, to finally creating a map of their own based on their exploration. The layout of their personal geography map is loosely inspired by medieval Italian mappa mundi created by Giovanni Leardo.
