The first project for Mapping & Place: use a part of your body to measure a room/space. Then, write a short paragraph detailing your system and how you decided on a particular scale. For 1 point extra credit, video yourself measuring and post your video.
For this project I decided to measure the back porch with my feet in moccasins simply because I was reading through the lesson on my back porch and I had on moccasins. First, I moved a few things from the walls to make the process easier. Next, I measured my foot in the moccasin and discovered it equaled ten inches. I drew a sketch of the porch area and then walked around the perimeter, moccasin to moccasin, counting the steps and making notes on my sketch (included in the video). Finally, I figured out that my porch had a perimeter of 117.5 moccasins or 1,175 inches.
