EaRL Treasure Island Map Mat from Hope Education
Well shiver me timbers, if this isn’t a great cross-curricular coding resource! The EaRL Treasure Island Map from Hope Education (74.5 x 74.5cm) is sure to inject some serious fun and engagement into your classroom. Use EaRL Coding Robot (not included) to play the role of Jim Hawkins, and take pupils on an adventure around the island, trekking the mountains, crossing perilous bridges and hopefully, finding the buried treasure!
• There’s a treasure trove of cross-curricular opportunities here. Use EaRL and the Treasure Island Map to teach directional language and compass directions to improve geographical skills; play with coordinates to develop geometry knowledge; use the setting for creative writing and storytelling – or just take pupils on a roleplay quest.
• Use EaRL to inject engagement in your lessons by providing your pupils with a deeper learning experience through a multi-sensory approach.
• Develop the programming skills of your KS1 or KS2 classes and prepare them for the digital future ahead of them.
