Directions.--The children make roads by standing in lines (see
diagram). Four children should stand at the place marked x (see fig. 2),
one child facing each road, and holding in its two hands a good-sized
strip of cardboard, with the name of a town or village to which the road
is supposed to lead printed thereon. It would be well to use the names
of places in the district with which the children are familiar. Some of
the children must be little travellers, and come walking up the
different roads until they reach the sign-post, then all repeat the

The little travellers do not know
Which way to go, which way to go,
But here's a sign-post that will tell;

The travellers should be told the names on the sign-post before
starting, and each should choose the place to which he will journey.
After the lines are repeated, each traveller takes the road that leads
to his destination.
