Orienteering/Trail KS1

Orienteering/Trail KS1

(0)
Are you looking for a fun outdoor activity? This is a very popular activity at my school - all you need to do is print out the 12 stations and laminate (optional!) then position them around your outdoor area. You can provide the children with a map so it is more of an orienteering task or just set it up as a trail. The children then work in groups/pairs to visit each station, read and answer the questions (which are a mix of English, maths, science and geography) recording their answers on the sheet provided along with the blue symbol. At the end of the course the children will have collected 11 letters and station 12 gives them a final hint to work out the secret message. This resource is easily edited to suit your needs and there are certificates included for all children who complete the course!
