Description of Experience/Procedure

The teacher selects and marks an outdoor play area before calling the children. When the lesson begins, the teacher instructs learners on how to play the hide-and-seek game. Students should work in groups. The groups should take turns finding the other students from their hiding places.




A discussion at the end of the game gives students the chance to explain what they learned when playing. For instance, children should have noticed that classmates with smaller body sizes could fit in hiding places where the bigger children could not. Also, they must have realised that those who ran fastest settled into hiding places before countdown ended. Students should also explain how counting skills aided the game, and vice versa.




To help children understand the game off finding hidden objects better, the teacher could hide pictures and ask the children to find them.


Resources and materials:

Papers with clues

Simple maps containing pictures that are easy to recognise

A few markers indicating the play area

Scissors for cutting the pictures

Cardboards for sticking the pictures, using glue



The teacher cuts out familiar pictures and gives to each child inside the classroom. Students first recognise the names of the various objects in each pictures before using glue to stick them on the cardboards. The teacher then collects all pictures from the students and goes to the pre-marked outdoor play area to hide them. Children then join the teacher in the outdoor space to find the hidden objects. Teacher places children into groups of fives and writes five names of pictures that each group should find.  

The experience helps the teacher to find out the children’s ability to remember objects that they saw earlier in the classroom.


Pedagogical Practices (Teaching Strategies)

Evaluation of Experience


Assessment/documentation for children’s learning:

Based on observations from the hide-and-seek game, the simplification stage, and the extensions activities.


Achievement's narration:

The lesson is successful if the students:

Identified hiding places in which they fit perfectly as these shows understanding of quantity

Could identify objects in various pictures

Actively participated in the lesson

Used relevant vocabulary

Demonstrated social skills when working in small groups

Showed problem-solving capability



Linking to EYLF Outcome/s


Tick one relevant outcome and provide rationale

LO1: Children have a strong sense of identity

LO2: Children are connected with and contribute to their world

LO3: Children have a strong sense of wellbeing

LO4: Children are confident and involved learners

LO5: Children are effective communicators


The children followed guidelines offered for the game and actively participated in both the hide-and-seek and in finding hidden pictures. They also explained what they learned when playing.

Future Planning

Use an advanced hidden objects activity that will require the children to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned, and enhance their understanding of the related concepts.
