What Direction Do I Go?

Fourth grade students in Mrs. Burnor’s and Mrs. Parham’s classes at Northern Shores Elementary reviewed directions on a compass and social studies facts that will be found on their benchmark.  It was a beautiful day to be outside.  Students had to demonstrate knowledge of the different directions by standing on the compass in the correct spot.  Great practice for their test while having fun too!  Note:  It was “dress like a farmer day” at NSES on this day :-)
