Compass Creation

For a fun activity with your favorite explorer, make a compass! Using simple materials found at home, this science activity will help your child learn about directions, follow directions, and use critical-thinking skills. Once your child gets the hang of it, bury a treasure in the yard and create a map for him, using directional clues to find it.
