This lesson is an ideal introduction to compass directions for younger children.
It is part of Our World, a Geography unit designed for students in KS1 and lower KS2 (Y1-3), but can also be taught as a stand alone lesson.
The presentation introduces the four cardinal points of the compass (North, East, South and West). It then challenges students to describe the position of objects using these compass directions.
The activity worksheets are differentiated two ways:
Easier – Students describe the position of objects using compass directions (simple questions).
Harder – Students describe the position of objects using compass directions (mixed questions).
Extension – Students fill in the blanks on a compass using different vocabulary.
