Journey Sticks

Encourage your pupils to get to know their school grounds by investigating journeys, map-making and creating their own ‘journey sticks’.

Journey Sticks are a fantastic way to develop geographical understanding. Getting closer to nature, this activity would be ideal for a whole class or an eco-group.

It can be as short or in-depth as you make it (and plenty of extension ideas are given in the plan!). The visual map pupils will build during the activity is a wonderful memento. A great take home encouraging further discussion with family members long after completion.
