This afternoon, Year Four had a great Geography discussion - we should have done it in Geography yesterday but we got so carried away with our first activity that we ran out of time! Our job was to solve some challenges about where different countries in the world were in relation to the equator and identifying which hemisphere they were located in. The children used great logical thinking and quickly identified continents, used directional language to narrow it down even further.
We then played a game where one person chose a location and gave Geographical clues to their partner about where it was (e.g. South of the equator, to the right of ____) until they could finally locate the winning place. The children were quick to remind Miss Hanafin and Miss Grove that there is a world map at the back of our home-school diaries that could be used to complete this game at home. Maybe you could try it too!
