We had so much fun with the Cardinal directions. We started off with the mnemonic "Never Eat Slimy Worms" They all screamed and shouted in disgust. Then I linked it to the four directions on a compass rose Never-North, Eat- East, Slimy-South, Worms-West. To drive this concept home we made these adorable WORMS!!!!
They wrote the mnemonic sentence at the bottom of the page, made a compass rose up in the corner, and wrote the vocab terms under each segment of the worm's body.
