Task 6 – Option 2: Sequence of Instructions.

Barrier Games are an excellent resource that can be used across all year levels. They encourage the students to use repetition, sequence and specific language to explain instructions to a partner or group of players. Barriers are placed between the players, so they can not see each other's work. Each player has the same materials, picture or paper in front of them (depending on the year level). Each player takes turns to give instructions to the other players on how to arrange their materials, colour the picture, draw the picture or make a structure. Directions need to be very specific and sequential as there are no visual clues. The attached website gives ideas on a variety of activities that can be used for Barrier Games.
