This activity is a great way for students to practice using cardinal and intermediate directions. Simply print out the blank grid on both sides of a piece of paper and then have students create a path from the "Start" to the "X". Pair students up and have one partner give directions so that the other partner can create the path on the blank side of his/her paper. Partners then compare the two maps and switch roles. Download includes blank grid with a compass rose as well as directions.
