Geography

Grade 4

Map work

Module 3

The compass

  • The compass is an instrument used to determine direction.A Compass
    If your school owns a compass, take it outside to the sports field and try to determine north.

Activity 1

To do research on the compass [lo 1.1]

Do RESEARCH on the compass as an instrument for determining direction. Write down your information and REPORT what you have found.

Do the following:

  1. Visit a library and find at least two books (sources) containing information on the topic. Write down their names.
  2. Read the first source and write down the information under SOURCE 1.

3. Now read the second source and write down the additional information that was NOT mentioned in SOURCE 1 under SOURCE 2.

  1. Use the information from both sources to write a paragraph or two about the compass.
Source 1: ……………………………………………………………………….…………………………………………………………………
……………………………………………………………………….……………………………………………………………………….……………………………………………………………………….………………………………………………………………………..………………………………………………………………………..
Source 2: ……………………………………………………………………….…………………………………………………………………
……………………………………………………………………….……………………………………………………………………….……………………………………………………………………….……………………………………………………………………….……………………………………………………………………….

Activity 2

To find answers for questions on directions [lo 1.6]

Here are a few brainteasers! Try to find answers and to come to a conclusion by talking to one another.

1. In which direction do swallows migrate at the beginning of the winter in South Africa? Do you know why?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

…………………………………………………………………………………….

…………………………………………………………………………………….

2. Why do South Africans prefer that the windows of their houses be situated on the north side of the building?

……………………………………………………………………………………..

When working with maps and direction, you should always know where NORTH is.

Assessment

Learning outcome 1: geographical enquiry

The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate geographical and

environmental concepts and processes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.1 identifies information from various sources (maps, atlases, books) [finds sources];

1.6 uses information from sources (including own observations) to answer questions about people and places (e.g. ‘Why is it like that?’) [answers the question].
