What kid hasn't heard of Fortnite these days?!
We used this in class and everyone LOVED it. Even those that despise Fortnite had a lot of fun arguing about using current fads in math class!
To start off our lesson, we watched the Fortnite trailer and followed it up with this task. You can use it as a plenary or as an introduction to bearings - it works both ways!
I've included some extras. On the map:
Converted cm to km
Converted 1 tile to km
Converted 1 tile to 1 mile and updated the table with miles in place of km
