Next to/Behind/Across the Street From...

This week, we're studying about giving directions to somebody.  For example, "The Bank is across the street from the Library."  A fun way to make it interesting is to give the students a small picture of a city map (there's one in my textbook), along with a little written description about it.  I give them 5 minutes to memorize what they can, then they close their books and I ask them questions.  For example, "Where's the bank?" or "What kind of restaurant is it?"  I put them in groups or 4 and they have to write down their answers.  I collect the papers, quickly grade them, declare a winner and they get their little prize.  It's fun and learning combined!  Haha.  Tricky :)
