Making A Compass

Task Description: Hi my name is Sonnia what you need to make a compass is a leaf, bowl, water, needleand a magnet.  First get your bowl and pour some water into the bowl. Get your magnet and your needle and stroke the needle along the magnet for one minute. Then grab your leaf and let it float then get your needle and put it on top. And there you go when you put the needle on top it might go north ,east west or south.  Our needle pointed to the north.


  1. Kia ora, Sonnia! You worked really well with your buddies to read the instructions and make your compass. I know you overcame some challenges while you were doing this activity so that the needle did float on the leaf! Well done!
