Students will be involved in several fun introductory activities aimed at teaching direction and orientation. Students will then weave their way through an Orienteering/Treasure Hunt Course by following cryptic clues. They will be using their newly attained knowledge in conjunction with iPads, compasses and team skills. Throughout the session students will learn about how to use a compass, basic principles of direction and orientation, working together as a team. Great outdoor fun!
Students also get to keep their own working compass at the end.
After tuning in with some warm up games recapping on some basic principles of orienteering, students will be sent on an orienteering course with iPads, compasses and cryptic clues. Students will be required to work as a team to follow clues to various points of the course. They will record the direction of each clue in their folders. Students will learn about direction & orientation whilst having loads of fun!
We can also include mapping and plotting coordinates upon request.
