Using compass directions to locate places in St Lucia
This resource is designed for KS2 children. It is part of a wider unit called Exploring St Lucia which is designed to teach children about a contrasting non-European country.

First the presentation introduces children to the directions of the compass. It then helps children to locate places in St Lucia using compass directions - first using the four cardinal points (N, E, S, W), then also using the four ordinal points (NE, SE, SW, NW).

The accompanying activity gives children a chance to locate places in St Lucia using both the cardinal and ordinal points of the compass. It is differentiated two ways.

There is also an extension activity which challenges children to think about where places in St Lucia are located in relation to each other (e.g. Castries is north of Mount Gimie).
