What You'll Need
How to Set Up this Activity
- 1. Decide which area will be the destination and place Pete the Cat and his "cat food" snacks near the entrance of the room where they will easily be found.
- 2. Place the "Letter from Pete" in the back of the book along with the destination clue card for students to read when they finish the book.
- 3. Have the students read the letter first, and then the clue card to start the search.
- 4. Encourage students to use their O&M skills to navigate their way around campus allowing them to search as independently as possible! Give verbal hints as to where Pete might be hiding, if needed.
- 5. Once Pete is found, sit down and have a snack. Searching for Pete is hard work!
- Make it fun by being enthusiastic and using lots of descriptions to describe the route and each destination.
- Listen for sounds, tactile clues, and even different smells as you reach the lunch room.
