Outdoor classroom for Mercer Island High School
Mercer Island High School students have painted a new map of Europe, Asia and Africa on the cement in the school's amphitheater. It was dedicated June 7.
Mike Radow, a history teacher at MIHS, organized the project for his ninth grade Global Studies classes over a period of two years. It was funded by the PTA and required the cooperation of custodians, the school district and MIHS faculty members. However, he attributed most of the project's success to his students. The map is intended to be used as an outdoor classroom.
"If you want to walk along the Silk Road, you can do that," Radow said. "If you want to go on the Crusades, you can do that."
