This basic compass is the perfect way to teach your children about geographical direction and the 4 cardinal points – North, South, East and West.
The compass consists of a magnetised dial/rose mounted on a pivot point inside a fluid filled capsule made from a sturdy plastic base and perspex top.
For more advanced use, angle markings in degrees are also shown on the compass rose, allowing the compass to be used to provide bearings for navigation.
The best way to hold the compass is flat on your palm, with your palm in front of your chest. If using with a map, place the compass and map on a flat surface.
