Compass Directions & Angles: Math Challenge - Shape, Space, and Measure Activity

This is a game where students will have to figure out where their classmate was standing by using the compass bearings / degrees and what they have said they could see. It’s a great way to learn about compass directions and degrees while exploring the outdoors and enjoying nature. First, students choose a place in the school / outdoor grounds and record on their sheet what they can see at each given compass bearing. They then swap sheets with a classmate and head off to try and figure out where they were stood by using the information in the table.

This resource contains two sets of differentiated sheets:

  • Compass headings (north, south, etc.)
  • Degrees.

Resources needed per student

  • Differentiated Activity Sheet
