Lesson 3


To use eight points of a compass


Cardinal directions are probably the most important directions in geography: north, south, east and west. These directions help us orient ourselves wherever we are. ... You can use a magnetic compass, which uses the Earths magnetic field, to figure out where you are or in which direction you want to go.


Mr Measure and his son go to the woods and follow the instructions on a map. The viewer is then asked to draw the map of their route using a 1cm to 1m scale.


Label an 8 point compass



Lesson 4


What are maps? Why do we use them? Have you got any maps at home?

Maps present information about the world in a simple, visual way. They teach about the world by showing sizes and shapes of countries, locations of features, and distances between places.




1. Create your own map of a community using the different pictures. 2. Write a set of instructions to five different locations on your map for a friend to follow. 3. Remember you need to use directional language to direct your friend.


Lesson 5


Why do we need map symbols?

Maps use symbols to label real-life features and make the maps clearer. With so many features on a map, there would not be enough space to label everything with text. Symbols can be small pictures, letters, lines or coloured areas to show features like campsites, pubs or bus stations
