First put your compass on the palm of your hand as coast as possible.
Put red Fred in the shed...line up the red arrow with the red "shed." You just figured out where NORTH is!
You now know that the arrow in the "shed" is pointing north.
To find out the degree, face the arrow shed lined up with the arrow in front of you and then let the red arrow go wherever. Where the arrow that is red goes points to the degree. Read and finish!!!
