WORLDS LARGEST LESSON PLAN

Benjamin M. Tinsley did a workshop in Kansas last September in which we were sent down a Map Talks rabbit hole to research a problem and how people around the world are addressing it and solving it and create a lesson plan.

This article really inspired me:
And Kedibone Refilwe Tsiloane and Kekeletso Pulane Tsiloane from Sasolburg, Free State are two sisters who brought plastic bricks to South Africa to build low-cost housing.
I went down a deep rabbit hole in that workshop and came up really excited.
