How to Introduce High School Kids to an O Map?

Show Profile  Rolf Posted: 19 March 2017, 4:41 PM  
I am working with a local school to setup an Orienteering module within the PE curriculum. Much to my surprise they are going to put each through 6 classes of Orienteering.
It is a big campus so we are going to have a go at using http://www.iorienteering.com/ to run increasingly challenging courses each lesson.

The first lesson will be some sort of map introduction lesson. I can't be there, so this needs to be setup so the PE teachers can do it.
I envisage some simple exercises that help them get familiar with the map and learn what the various symbols mean.

Any suggestions?

In the first paragraph, I meant to say...
... put each Year 9 class through 6 sessions of Orienteering...

Try the resources pages on our national website.

In particular the Kiwi-O-Manual designed for teaching in schools and it has several activities.
