In this activity, students use their knowledge of the Sun and Moon to make compass directions and then use these directions to participate in a treasure hunt.

By the end of this activity, students should be able to:

  • find E, W, N and S using the Sun and Moon
  • devise a compass to use within the confines of school
  • use their compass knowledge to complete and/or make a treasure hunt (that uses compass point clues).
