1. Decide on the area you would like the children to explore.
2. Decide on the time limit the children have to complete the task.
3. Children could work individually but working in pairs or small groups would encourage conversation and discussion.
4. Ask the children to record their findings on the sheet provided – children could also take photos if they have access to suitable equipment.
5. For the more active children, they can run around the area and try to find multiple examples to record.
6. Whilst this is not a competition with “winners”, you may want to compare recording sheets and discuss the class findings – possibly with other groups or classes.
7. An e-certificate will be sent to each participating school.
8. Recording sheets can be scanned and submitted to me, these will be shared with other schools via the SGO public profile page on the School Games website. https://www.yourschoolgames.com/sgo/newsome-high/
