    English Outdoors

    We took ourselves outside to investigate prepositions in English. Prepositions describe the position of something. For example; on, under, behind. In groups we each had a figure we had to place in obscure places as long as we could identify the preposition it was related to. Take a look at where this Gorilla ended up. Can you guess our prepositions?
