After teaching my students the three characteristics of a good O&M landmark, it was time for them to identify on their own what can or can’t be a landmark. This lesson was a good way to make sure my students understood what landmarks are before going out into the community to look for real life landmarks.
Discuss devices such as songs, rhymes, and acronyms to aid memory (both teachers and students), to help make lessons fun and productive.
I am visually impaired and had O&M instruction very infrequently as a child. As a result of this, I had gaps in my skills when I went away to graduate school. I discussed the problem with my instructor who devised this creative lesson.
A lesson on how to generate your own QR codes to create a scavenger hunt for students that includes the use of O&M skills.

Marco Polo-rientation is an indoor activity to practice the cardinal directions and degrees.
This is a game I designed to practice the cardinal directions with a student who has been practicing these concepts for a few weeks now.

A board game designed to practice lateral directions in a fun way.
