DD6 & DD8 have been working on directions and using a compass.
We started with a great little compass cut and paste from The Learning Ark to learn all the cardinal points
Next we played with a floating compass to find out which directions their windows faced,
then we made a compass and achecked it worked using our floating compass as a guide
next they had a treasure hunt - they used a compass and followed directions (go NE 2 meters etc) to find the prize and finished with some 3 part cards from Montessori for everyone for longitude and latitude.
