Line in Class
This worksheet is a language exercise that focuses on spatial relationships and the use of prepositions to describe the positions of people in a line. The worksheet displays an illustration of six girls in a line, labeled with their names from left to right as Mary, Brittany, Samantha, Chloe, and Amy, with the instruction to consider the teacher as the head of the line. Below the image are sentences with blanks where students are required to fill in the appropriate prepositions such as ‘behind’, ‘in front of’, ‘near’, ‘far from’, ‘next to’, ‘between’, and ‘from’ to correctly describe the relative positions of the girls. The activity not only involves understanding spatial concepts but also applying the correct terminology to describe those positions.
The worksheet is designed to teach students how to accurately use prepositions to describe spatial relationships between different subjects. It encourages students to observe the positions of the characters in the picture and to choose the correct words to describe those positions relative to each other. This practice is essential for language development, particularly in mastering the use of prepositions, which are a fundamental part of descriptive language. It also helps to improve comprehension and the ability to follow and give directions based on spatial awareness.
