Today we shall be doing a GEOGRAPHY lesson where we will be learning about compasses! 

 

Compasses are a well-used tool in many geographical fields as they help to point you in the right direction, whether that is: North, South, East or West.

 

Compasses have been used for centuries and have proven vital in discovering many uncovered areas of the world. Famous pirates loved to use compasses to allow them to find buried treasure!

 

Most compasses have 4 points on them just like this one:

 

           N (NORTH) – Naughty

           E (EAST) – Elephants                 

           S (SOUTH) – Squirt

           W (WEST) - Water

 

A way to remember the points is by making a mnemonic e.g. NAUGHTY ELEPHANTS SQUIRT WATER
