This lesson is part of a wider unit called Exploring St Lucia and is designed to teach KS2 students about a contrasting non-European country.
First the presentation introduces students to the directions of the compass. It then helps them to locate places in St Lucia using compass directions – first using the four cardinal points (N, E, S, W), then also using the four ordinal points (NE, SE, SW, NW).
The accompanying activity gives students a chance to locate places in St Lucia using the points of the compass. It is differentiated two ways.
Easier – Students locate places using the eight points of the compass (with compass direction hints).
Harder – Students locate places using the eight points of the compass (no compass direction hints).
Extension – Students complete another compass direction challenge.
