Concept map gallery

The weekly gallery showcases concept maps created by learners participating in How to Survive on Mars.

The gallery is curated by the lead-educators and moderators, and at the end of each week they’ll select a small number of pieces that have been shared by learners with the How to Survive on Mars group on Flickr that best reflects the connections between key concepts within each week. We hope the gallery inspires your own concept map.

Sharing your concept maps on Flickr

If you’d like your concept to be considered for the weekly gallery, you’ll need to post it to the Concept Map Gallery: Week 1 group on Flickr. If you haven’t already, you’ll need to register with Flickr. If you’re not sure how to do this, review Signing in to Flickr and How to join a Flickr group.

Here’s a very simple concept map to get you started. In your concept map, consider showing how you will obtain water, why you need it and any issues you may encounter or need to solve. Now, go create your own.

In the Comments, consider sharing with other learners your thoughts on the concept maps that have been included in the gallery for this week. You might like to ask other learners about the connections they made in their maps.

You can also share with other learners your thoughts on the week, making sure you mention what has excited you the most or what challenges with your concept map that you have overcome.
