Activity Name: "Space Explorers" Objective: To improve spatial awareness in children through a fun, exciting, and interactive game. Materials needed: 1. Different sized cardboard boxes 2. Colourful Markers 3. Play Tunnel 4. Miniature furniture/toy appliances 5. Timer Activity Preparation: 1. Create a mini obstacle course indoors or outdoors with the cardboard boxes, play tunnel, and miniature furniture. 2. Use the markers to draw arrows, numbers or colored dots on the boxes to serve as movement guides. Activity Procedure: 1. Divide the children into small manageable groups. 2. Briefly explain the course to the kids and show them how they should navigate through the course by going over, under, around or through the different objects. 3. Start the game by asking the first child from each group to navigate through the course while others observe. 4. Timing each child could add a fun competitive element, but is not necessary. The main goal is not speed but their ability to correctly follow the spatial directions. 5. Once a child completes the course, others should follow. If they can't remember the correct path, they can ask their teammates for directions. 6. Rotate the children so that everyone gets a chance to participate. 7. To increase the difficulty, you can blindfold the children and have their teammates guide them verbally - reinforcing the understanding of spatial language. Points of Learning: 1. Enhances spatial awareness as children maneuver through spaces by going over, under, around or through obstacles. 2. Promotes teamwork and communication skills especially if you introduce the blindfold challenge. 3. Ideal for understanding concepts of size, space, direction, and distance. Remember to keep a close watch on the kids during the activity to ensure their safety while they're having fun.
