In Geography we are looking at North, South, East and West. These are the 4 points on a compass and help us navigate our way around the world. A compass works by using the Earths magnetic field to always point North. This means you can always find out which way you are facing if you have a map.

The document below has a map and some challenges on it, you don't need a compass or have to be in school, you can just work it out by following the map and pretending your really there. If you do have a compass that could help, just make sure you line it up right with the map.
