Draw a picture using compass points.
Outdoor - Pegs, string, 30cm ruler, (mallet if ground hard), Compass point reference sheet
Indoor - Graph paper, pencil, Compass point reference sheet
Additional - looked at this and thought it was great, but there are no resources, then found a whole evening plan from East Leigh Scouts which is now attached - this involves more activities than those listed here.
Convert a simple picture to a set of compass barings and paces (e.g. North 2 paces, East 2 paces, South 2 paces, West 2 paces makes a square)
- More complex shapes will need more moves
There are two options:
- Indoors with paper and pen
- Outdoors with string and pegs in the grass
They then work out what they have drawn, hopefully finishing at the same place they started if the bearings were accurate.
