Google Street View treasure hunt to practise directions!

Google Street View treasure hunt to practise directions!

This is a fantastic way to get kids to practise directions and places in town in a foreign language. Find a town where Google street is operational and make a list of instructions for kids to navigate, as if they were actually navigating in that town. It's a little time consuming to make, but kids really enjoy it and it's the next best thing to actually visiting the place in person!The follow-up activity is to get kids to plan one of their own in a town of their choice, to get them to practise places in town, using directions, and using the imperative.I have used it with my Year 8 group, as well as my Year 12 ab initio group, but it can be adapted to any year group by changing the level of difficulty of the questions.

Treasure Hunt - Places in Town and Directions

Treasure Hunt - Places in Town and Directions

A fun game that can be used to practise speaking about places in town and giving directions.Works best if there are prizes for finding the treasures!There are 5 maps with streets and town buildings (church, hospital ect) and three hidden treasure per slide. Students have to guess where the treasure is by naming the place of giving directions there, when you click on the place it reveals either an empty space or a treasure.The third slide turns the whole game into a race between different teams.In stronger classes they could practise prepositions and cases/genders (in der Kirche/ au stade ect)The last two slides are more detailed to practise more complex directions like ‘over the bridge’, ‘at the traffic light’ ect.
