GM1-4: Describe their position relative to a person or object.

Elaboration on this Achievement Objective: 

This means students will describe their position using positional language such as next to, in front of, behind, between, to the right/left and simple diagrams and maps. Their descriptions should become increasingly precise in terms of distance from the landmark (in steps) and location of that landmark on simple schematic maps.
