Compass Directions

The printable resources below can be used when children are learning about compass directions. Four PDFs are available, with cardinal directions (north, east, south and west) and ordinal directions (north-east, south-east, south-west and north-west).

There are also resources with blank labels for children to add these themselves.

I begin each year with a pirate theme in which I teach my geography unit.  We too, put the North, South, East, and West signs up.  Then together, as a whole class.  We leave directions for our parents to follow as they enter our room for open house.  When the enter, they have to grab a map that the class previously made.  The map will send them around the room to designated places that we want them to look at such as the computers, the library, lunch menu, etc.  At the end of the map, where they are supposedly to find the treasure, I put out a big open treasure chest with candy pieces in it.  This is a great and fun way to make sure our parents have the opportunity to see all the things we are doing in class!  Try it, it's fun!!!
