Compass Turns


Anyone can have a go at the first two activities below. The third activity, 'Compass Turns Option 3' is a 'Spicy' task.

A few things to remember:

There are 8 points on the compass. A turn from one point to the next, for example from north to north-east clockwise, is 45º.

Every turn through 2 spaces, for example from east to south clockwise, is 90º.

A turn through three spaces, for example from south to north-west clockwise is 135º (90º + 45º).

You can also find a short video clip by Mrs. Bell which describes all of the turns around the compass.
