Playground Treasure Hunt

Last week, as part of her Map Unit for her internship, Ashley created a treasure map for the children. Each day they were given a new hint, which told the kids what landmark needed to be added to the map.  

They had to figure out where to place the landmark on the map in relation to the school and previous landmarks.  The hints also specified how they would get from one landmark to another (22 paces, zig zag steps, etc). 

On Friday, they had their final hint and the map was completed. They followed Ashley along as she showed them the map at each landmark and reviewed what they had recorded over the week. 

The Hidden Treasure: A Picnic!

Thank you Ashley! 
The preschoolers really enjoyed this activity.
