Mapping Treasured Places and Spaces Outdoors
I asked them what that meant and they told me that they used the remembering rocks to mark locations in the forest that they loved to go to and to point the way for friends to find. These treasured places and spaces then became ceremoniously blessed with the placement of a remembering rock at the site where it is located. We then began to learn about inuksuks. As each child visited the locations for the first time they would collaboratively add a stone, carefully balancing one on top of the other to create an inuksuk. We will be mapping these "loved spots" within the forest on a large mural.
