Cardinal Directions

$0.00

In our Cardinal Directions lesson plan, students learn about what the cardinal directions are and how to use them. Students learn to identify the four cardinal directions and how to apply these words to things like using a map.

Description

Our Cardinal Directions lesson plan introduces students to the cardinal directions. Most students know the four different words for the directions, but often get confused when applying the information on maps or when outdoors. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to create pneumonic devices to remember the cardinal directions and use their creativity to create designs for a compass rose. Students are also asked to find each state in a given list and tell which states are found north, east, south, or west of its borders in order to demonstrate their understanding of the cardinal directions.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify the four cardinal directions and apply the information using a map or a sunrise and sunset.
