Any volunteers? Can the rest of the people direct him/her to his/her wallet without touching him/her? Are there any other ways to give him/her directions to where he/she needs to go?
8-point compass Primary Four Miss Grace Ong Miss Wang Ai Pei
Introduce 4 basic directions. Use the mnemonic Naughty Elephants Spray Water. Introduce NE, NW, SE, SW. Practise these 8 directions in class.
Mission: Your country is under attack. Your enemy has planted a nuclear bomb and you have to retrieve a code to stop the bomb from detonating.
1.Work in groups of 4 – 5 pupils. 2. Each group will be issued a map of the school, an instruction sheet and a marker. 3. Your enemy has left his mark behind with this symbol ( ). Use the instruction sheet and map to find the symbol. 4. There is a letter beside each symbol. Write all the letters to form a code. A
Give pupils an estimated time to finish task. Point out where north is. Tell pupils not to run for safety reasons. Expected behaviour. Confined area.
1.Map 2.Instruction sheets 3.Symbol cards 4.Codes - Answers 5.Water-soluble markers 6.PowerPoint Slides for the lesson
1.Get a school map - Simplify the map such that only items/locations that the kids need are on it. (Can be done as you do the next step.) - Indicate North on the map. (Need not be the real north.)
2.Identify a starting point - Find a starting point that will be easy for kids to start off such as an open space. - From the starting point, look for obvious spots for clues. (Use spots that you can easily plan the routes.)
3.Planning of routes -Plan different routes leading to the same locations. To avoid everyone running in the same directions. To prevent herd syndrome
4. Form clues - Give only easily solved clues - Confine locations to a manageable area for safety reasons and keeping the task to a reasonable lesson time.
4.Come up with all the possible answers 5.Laminate all the clue cards and letters (to re-use in future).
1.Put up the laminated symbols only on the day itself before the lesson. 2.Conduct a pre-activity briefing informing pupils of the task, rules of the game and safety rules. 3.Do a demo practice in class to give the class an idea of what to expect.
