Compass activities are perfect for summer (or whenever you have good weather for outdoor walks where you live). And compass walks are great outdoor learning experiences, ones that can be fun for the whole family.
For today’s post, I enjoyed searching for free Montessori-inspired compass rose printables and activities along with ideas for outdoor compass walks. The compass rose printables can encourage some meaningful learning activities before a compass walk.
