-Blank extension templates
-Teacher answer sheet and instructions
Game Instructions:- Children should be in teams of 2/3.
The basketball court (or any wide space) should be set up as shown in the diagram on page 4 in the pack. Make sure that the letters and the compass points are laminated and attached to a cone.
Give children a question board. The aim of the game is that they discover the correct letter combination so that they can win treasure chests.
Once children have the sequence they should go and check with the teacher. They should be sent back if they have not got it correct. With lower ability children it is a good idea to circle their mistake.
Children can be extended with blank boards that either you have completed for them or they have completed for each other. The winners are those with the most treasure chests.
Get children to work together in small groups. Set a group target, set a class target...you will love this game!
