My studio artists spend a lot of their free time immersed in hunting, snowmobiling and fishing. It's important to know about property lines and how to read a plat map so we can find out how to access that small, obscure lake up north where some guy at the local eating establishment bragged about catching their limit of walleye or northern. Although, it's up to you on whether or not you believe the fisherman's tale. Some fishermen don't want their favorite fishing spot to become populated with outsiders. Ya gotta keep it a secret! Shhhh!
I jumped on board with her plat map unit. I wanted my 8th grade students to learn about the printmaking process before they dove into using linoleum, so why not make a large scale version of our local plat map?
