Position and direction are four activities showing a grid square, and objects must be placed or their locations identified to familiarise children to the use of co-ordinates.

Map skills are five activities in which children discover how symbols are used on maps, and how to use 4 and 6 figure co-ordinates with a map. Map skills has exercises covering scale and planning a route.
