Mapping skills: Cardinal and Intermediate Directions
Let's Build a Zoo: This hands-on activity is great for a review of the cardinal and intermediate directions. I have included a teacher set of the animals so the teacher can build a zoo along with the class. I put magnets on the back of my animals so I can use the white board as my zoo.
Students will practice following directions to build 2 zoos on top of their desks. For the final zoo, students will be given directions to place the animals on to paper. They will then glue them to paper to turn in to the teacher. Knowing and using the cardinal and intermediate directions is the focus of this activity.
