A project where students interact with grid reference systems for a realistic movie cinema context.
Let’s go to Colossal Cinemas, the best cinema around!
This teaching resource is a project that teaches students how to plan and use a movie cinema seating plan in the format of a grid reference system. Students will get in touch with relevant, real life skills to use a mix of inference skills, judgements and grid reference skills to help decide which seating arrangements will suit a variety of different peoples needs and group sizes.
In this project students will:
- answer questions and infer about seating arrangements using coordinates
- read and comprehend customer requests and make judgements about their seating choices
- challenge themselves in limited scenarios
- compete with peers on a battleships style movie seating game.
