Everyone Knows How to Read a Compass, Right?
During our January 15th meeting our boys learned many of the key basics for land navigation. Some important lessons learned were:
How to read a map legend
The two different types of north (grid north and magnetic north)
How to determine declination
How to properly orient a map
How to shoot a bearing (azimuth)
Troop 218 continues to focus on teaching our boys life-long skills!
