Easy DIY Compass

What direction is north? Teach your class how to make a simple compass after watching this clip. It's a great project for young learners who are just beginning to work with magnets. As an extension activity, you could take your class outside and have them walk around the building with their compass. Does the direction of the magnet change? Help them to understand why the magnet follows north, and use containers with lids to avoid a spill!
