North, South, East, West


Materials

  • Small toy, book, or household object

Directions

  1. Show your child north, south, east, and west by using your home as a reference point. If your child's bedroom faces east, point out the sun rising in the morning. Show the sunset through a window facing west.
  2. Once your child has her directional bearings, hide a small toy or household object somewhere in the house.
  3. Give directions to its location: two steps to the north, three steps west, and so on.
