Year Four students were able to put their understandings of location into practice on Friday, when they ventured on a community walk with Foundation. We identified different routes to Epping North Conservation Reserve and were challenged to map directions, using at least three left hand turns and three right hand turns. Some valuable lessons about location were learned once we set out and when we mapped out clues uncovered along the way. What a wonderful opportunity to use the language of location!
We also explored the grassy woodland habitat with the Foundation students, looking at the flora, fauna and minibeasts at the reserve. This answered some of our questions and provided more wonderings.
What did you learn about location?
Was your walking route the most efficient? What makes you say that?
