We kicked off our Where in the World Am I? geography topic with a TREASURE HUNT in Moortown park!
In teams, we used a map, compass points and a trundle wheel to locate the stash!
We had to carefully read and precisely follow the directions – one metre South East instead of South West would have had catastrophic consequences!
Once each location was reached, we had to find the coin and note down the letter that was on it. There was a lot of excited cheers that kept ringing out across the park!
Ask your child to tell you the word that was spelled out on the treasure! Hint: it means the lines on maps that show how steep or gentle the terrain is.
Can you spot a way that we made sure we were safe on our treasure hunt?
