Title: Getting Lost
Description: This Xpeditions lesson has students practice their knowledge of the cardinal directions by having them describe the directions in their classroom. They practice figuring out the relative directions of other places (such as another classroom or the office) in relation to their classroom. They conclude by taping signs with place names around the room to show the directions they would travel to get to those places.
