The use of a compass and map is a skill that is often never learned, taught haphazardly, just not learned correctly, or since it is a perishable skill is simply forgotten. With the Silva Compass Education Kit this valuable skill can be taught correctly through the use of an over sized demonstrator compass, 24 Polaris 177 compasses, teaching manuals, and brochures. The demonstrator compass is an oversized version of the Polaris 177 compasses passed out to students to point out the features and proper use of the compass. The two teaching manuals "Be Expert with Map & Compass" and "Teaching Orienteering" can get the instructor prepared for a class, refresh memory with, and reference during a class. Make the valuable skill of using a compass and orienteering a skill that is not lost with the Silva Compass Education Kit.
