1. Copy one handout for each individual student and distribute them.
2. Learners start the activity by designing a treasure map. Encourage them to draw a large island and to add some typical features of an island, such as beaches, caves, jungle and rocks. Allow the learners 10-15 minutes to complete their maps. When they are done, tell them to 'hide' some treasure on the map. Students don't mark the location of their treasure. Rather, they write a series of instructions in the box below.
3. Monitor the students, and when appropriate provide any necessary individual language input while the learners are designing their treasure routes.
4. When all the learners have finished hiding their treasure, collect the maps and randomly distribute them so each learner is not looking at their own map. Learners read the clues their colleague has written and locate the missing treasure. When they are done, get them to check that they are correct with the maps' designer.
5. For feedback, ask students if they found their partner's treasure. Ask them if it was easy to find it and where a good place to hide the treasure was.
6. Draw the students' attention to any specific mistakes which seem prevalent through the work and offer language input.
