Compass Course

Activity:Compass Course


Use a compass to navigate through the woodland, following the reflectors and walking for a certain number of paces on a given bearing to answer the questions as you go.

This takes place outside in the woodland and requires pupils to have a little understanding of orienteering maps and how to use them and some experience of using a compass to take a bearing.
