Buzz Lightyear Connect It!: Flight Path Activity

In this activity, "space cadets" (learners) use writing and sequencing skills in addition to directional words/ordered pairs to guide Buzz Lightyear (from the movie "Toy Story") through a grid to reach his orbiter. Learners are encouraged to avoid all obstacles and use as many or as few steps as needed. Once completed, learners give their flight path to a friend and ask him/her to follow the directions to help Buzz reach his orbiter.
