CALLING ALL EXPLORERS...
Plan an exciting journey for a character, such as a toy figure, as you help them travel through the landscape of your home or your garden.
Create your own rivers, dangerous bogs, creaky bridges, tall grasses, deep dark caves and terrible villains. Help your character (hero) survive and tell us the thrilling story through pictures or drawing their journey.
Here are some ideas for you.
a deep bog a tall cliff tall grasses creaky bridge
As a challenge, can you create a paper map of the landscape, using a key to show the main features (they can add extra ones if they wish: including some more human features such as tracks, buildings, etc).
The route should be clearly plotted on the map.
