Starting in 2019, we introduced a new activity under the Școala Altfel program, namely the Orientation. The main objectives of the program are to acquire basic knowledge such as:
– correct use of a map, positioning into fiels
– using the main information on a map: scale, equidistance, legend.
– taking the direction of the map (heading) and measuring the distances on the map respectively
– Use of the compass in the field to find and maintain a direction.
The program has two parts: a theoretical one taking place in the classroom (~ 1h) and a practical one (eg Botanic Park, ~ 2h). They work in teams of up to 5 people. Below you can find some pictures of the two-class oriented activity of NR School. 24 Timisoara (II and VII).
