Saying (to think about)
If you dig a pit for others to fall into, you will fall into it yourself.

This activity is about using a compass.
For a refresher on the parts of a compass go to: https://forms.gle/4YBZuSf9PpPKPKJt5

For how to use a compass go to: https://www.rei.com/learn/expert-advice/navigation-basics.html  (there is a video as well) or http://www.ussartf.org/compass_basics.htm

If you have a compass be sure to practice, it's very hard to learn to use a compass well without using a compass.
