A lovely KS3-4 worksheet resource to practise bearings.
The activity introduces Captain Sam who knows there is treasure buried on an island, but he only has an outline map. Students record the route he takes by following a series of bearings and distances.
The worksheet has 5 tasks:
- Task 1: Rules for giving bearings
- Task 2: Using a rule and protractor, draw the route that Captain Sam takes
- Task 3: Find the coordinates of the treasure
- Task 4/5: Further questions designed to get students thinking more deeply

I like the recap of the definition of a bearing as the first task.
