Just for Fun
For a while in college, I was an elementary education major. In our children's literature class, we were assigned to do a project of some sort that we could use later when we became teachers.
I remembered a map of Narnia that my fifth grade teacher had had on the wall, so I asked if I might borrow it. (She was also the wife of my college German professor, so it wasn't hard to get in touch with her.) She graciously loaned me the profesionally printed map, and I carefully made my own map of Narnia. Not exactly original, but I didn't know any other way to get a map like hers, which I knew I would want if I someday became a schoolteacher.
I took these pictures before finally getting it in a frame, packing it up, and sending it off to my aunt in Michigan, who actually teaches elementary school and could put it to use. I was rather attached to it, as it was quite a labor of love, but it became kind of sad to just have it sitting around in a closet all those years. I just found these photos recently (they are from January) when I was looking for something else.
Obviously, you can see more detail if you enlarge the photos. Enjoy!
