Draw Nature Maps

April 20, 2012

What You Need

  • Paper or sketchbook
  • Coloured crayons, pencils, or marker pens
  • A garden, field, or other interesting open space

What You Do

  • Go outside and find an interesting place to explore.  Look around it thoroughly.  If there are any hills or banks, get as high as possible.
  • Imagine what the place would look like if you a bird looking down on it.
  • Draw what you think the bird can see from high in the sky.  How big does everything look?  Where is it?
  • If you like, you could collect natural items from around the place and show were you found them on the map.
  • Give names to all the different parts of the map.
