Make a Simple Compass So You Don't Get Lost

A compass can be a useful tool to help you know where you are or the direction you are headed. But what if you don’t have one at home? You can make one of your own with a magnet! 

A compass works because it contains a magnetized needle, so to make a compass of your own you’ll need your own magnetized needle. Luckily, you can create one in a few easy steps. Follow along with this video as we make a compass and learn how it works. Here’s what you will need to get started:

  • A bowl

  • Water

  • A magnet

  • Cork or another lightweight object that will float on water

  • A sewing needle

  • A marker
