This quiz addresses part of the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 for children aged 5 and 6 in years 1 and 2 in Geography. Specifically it looks at the points of a compass and how they relate to maps, globes and the real world. It is one of 50 quizzes to help you understand the world around you.
Have you ever used a compass to find your way? Do you know the four points of the compass? Which way is north? Where does the sun rise? These are some of the questions you might be asked in geography. Maps help you find your way around the world. But you have to know that north is always at the top of the map. In this quiz we find out a little bit more about maps and how to use them.
