Students identify and analyze the various parts of the compass, including the bezel, capsule, and magnetic needle. Students explain the purpose of using a compass and locate the direction of North and South. Students show correlated compass directions (using angles, etc.) by drawing on grid or graph paper. Students research information on the differences between a temporary and permanent magnet and how the modern day compass was developed.
