- paper (2 per student)
- While outside, students draw a picture of the playground as they see it (expectation of accuracy being age dependent).
- Students pick three things in the playground to give directions to.
- For each of these things they write a detailed explanation of how to get there (on a separate piece of paper), including how many walking steps it should take (eg. ‘walk five steps to the monkey bars, turn to your left and walk ten steps to the playhouse’)
- After students exchange instructions, they see if they can get to their classmates destinations.
