Read, listen, draw, and learn! Follow Directions: Maps! is a fun, creative, and interactive activity that enhances listening or reading comprehension, increases vocabulary, supports basic recognition skills, reinforces memorization and recall, develops fine motor control, and offers children an engaging and rich learning experience! Children exercise their listening skills as the teacher reads a series of directions (or they read independently) that describe the shapes, lines, and colors that children can draw, while also reinforcing relative spatial positioning terms. While the directions are designed to have some specific attributes, other elements of the directions invite individual interpretation and creativity.
