Magnetic Attraction

My students need 26 accurate compasses to find their way to a predetermined place.

My Students

Our curriculum for social studies core requires we teach about the compass rose. We also teach north, south, east, and west in the classroom. Our science core magnet unit includes the poles and we learn to orient a compass and get from point A to point B using a compass.

We are an academically focused K-9 public charter school in Utah.

We have over 40% of our students on free and/or reduced lunch. We also regularly test as one of the top ten or twenty schools on state standardized tests, out of over 500 schools. My students love to learn and it shows in their attitudes and behavior.

My Project

In the past we have purchased two different kits for compasses the students are to use. They end up being defective. The needle falls off or it works backwards if it is accurate at all. The plastic breaks open or cracks. I would like to order hand-held compasses like the boy scouts use. I want a class set of something sturdy. Students can work in pairs to follow directions and find each other.

Hands on learning is the best learning, especially with seven and eight year old boys and girls.

With these compasses we can go outside and learn practical applications of the units we study in the classroom.
