Instruction Writing: The Human Bot
You need to be a member to download this file.

This activity can be used as a quick starter (for older children) or as a whole lesson for the younger ones.

Your class will create a set of instructions by choosing the correct cards to get their partner from the start to the finish. This activity can be great fun in a wooded area where there are lots of obstacles!

This is also a great cross-curricular link if you are teaching angles in your math lessons.
