Maps of Abu Dis

Last week we showed our classes maps and explained how they can be useful for finding out about a place. They looked at a map of London and also a map of Camden. We pointed out where Hampstead school is and other places of interest, they particularly wanted to know where the football stadiums are.

In the second class they produced their own maps of Abu Dis, including what is important/prominent to them in their town. They included shops, houses, schools, the university, Dar Assadaqa (a.k.a. Camden) and mosques. Noticeably they also included the Separation wall, the military camp and the watch tower, which reminds us that Abu Dis is an occupied town.

Here is some of their work:
