Using a Compass
School's out for the day, and the kids are tumbling home for the afternoon, perhaps with a few friends in tow. Sure, there's homework, and maybe you'll have errands, but everyone wants to take a break for a little snack and some fun play. Here's a marvelous backyard game that even happens to boost year four map skills learning. In this game, kids will use a compass to locate north, south, east and west, and then will find a hidden prize using only cardinal directions and coordinates. You can hide anything--a teddy bear, or a special message, perhaps--but we especially like hiding the afternoon snack. After all, there's nothing like hunger to get kids motivated, and nothing like a satisfying snack to remind them of the rewards of victory.
