Learning Objectives

Students will be able to explore location words using movement and music to guide them.


(5 minutes)
  • Gather students together and ask the students if they know how to describe where something is in the room.
  • Prompt students to show you where different objects are (e.g., What is above the red table? What is beside the yellow box? etc.).
  • Explain that we call the words beside, next to, in front of, and behind location words. These words help us to describe where things are in the world.
