MAKE A COMPASS

Learning Intention:

 

To understand how compasses work and to have a go at making a compass. 

Activity:

   

Knowing where Tokerau, Tonga, Rāwhiti and Uru (North, South, East and West) are is important whether you are navigating on land or on the water and compasses are a great tool for finding these directions. We are going to have a go at building a compass. There are lots of videos on the internet that explain how compasses work and how you can make one yourself. Have a look at these two videos and then have a go at building your own simple compass.
