Things to Do:

Bring or print a map solely for the layout during Show and Tell.

Students will use their own game pieces, such as an eraser or sharpener unless specific items are available.

Grammar: Prepositions

Prepositions typically come before a noun or pronoun and indicate the relationship between that noun or pronoun and other words in the sentence. For example, prepositions can show time, place, direction, or manner.

We use "At" in time and place.

Display the map to the class and ask encouraging questions like, "Can you please help me? I am lost. Where can I find the clinic?"

2. Learn: 15 min - Subject/Grammar

Next to/park: "The park is next to the shops."

3. Activity: 15 min - Classroom Scavenger Hunt

Distribute the preposition worksheet.

They write their sentences on the worksheet using prepositions.

16. Map-Making Challenge

1. Activity: 10 min - Brainstorming a New Town

Students must develop and construct a small-town map with locations and route layouts. Ask, "What building do you want?" and "What exists in your town?"

A map includes transportation lines, locations, environment, and other information.

Create a road network that resembles a city or downtown. The roads need to be open and connected.

Draw the structures and other features on the layout.

They will place one in every cross-section for about 10 to 12 spaces minimum.

Assign a number between 1 and 6 to each circle on the roadways for points.

4. Review: 15 min

Place each player's piece on the board. When players roll the dice, they move in any direction according to the dice number.
