Prepositions of movement storytelling activities

Practising above, along, around, etc with oral storytelling activities

Work together in small groups. Use prepositions of movement to describe the most interesting journey that you can think of. You can use words from below or your own ideas. Your teacher will tell you if you should also write a description of and/ or draw the journey. You can use the blank cards to repeat the same words or add your own ideas for places and/ or prepositions.

If another group drew their journey, try to describe it from their picture. They will correct anything that you got wrong.

Listen to or read descriptions of the other journeys, then vote on the most interesting.
