    An activity my students love and beg to do is our "map exercise". It is a version of touching your toes. I have a compass rose and the cardinal directions on a bulletin board. We face the board and do the following. Reach above your head and say "North". Reach for your toes and say "South", we put our left hand on our hip and put our right arm straight out to the side and say "East", then reverse this and say "West". When we do a map activity, I see them do this at their seats. I hope the directions are clear.
