Compass 3 Part Cards

A compass works because Earth is a huge magnet.  A magnet has two main centers of force, called poles—one at each end. Lines of magnetic force connect these poles.  A compass needle is attracted to a magnet, and will always point north along the magnetic lines caused by the Earth’s magnetic force.

Description

A compass is a tool to find direction.  A simple compass is a magnetic needle, mounted on a pin.  The needle can spin freely, but always points along the Earth’s magnetic line, towards magnetic north.  Using the Compass 3 Part Cards, a magnetized pin; and a bit of patience; you can make your own compass.

The earth’s magnetic poles are not the same as the geographic North and South poles.  The geographic poles are found at the very top and bottom of a globe, but the magnetic poles float freely nearby.  This means that a compass user has to make adjustments to find true north.  (Courtesy Britannica Kids, read more…)
