I think it might be fun to link this to an activity I use in my science classes, so students can see some additional connections. This can obviously be linked directly to the importance of following directions or writing a SPECIFIC scientific procedure so it can be replicated by other scientists, and also to the unit in which I teach motion (the use of reference points when giving directions. I will have students pick out a "secret" object in the room. Without describing it at all, they must write down instructions for locating it. They will give these instructions to another student who will then have to follow them and guess the object. It is always fun to see if students are specific enough in their instructions (for example, did they say something like, (if facing the back of the classroom, turn left). They quickly realize the importance of using reference points or in telling someone how many degrees to turn (as mentioned in the lesson).
