17 Well done! You have labeled your “Cardinal Directions”

18 Use your protractor to measure 45 0 clockwise to NorthEast N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0

19 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to Southeast N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE 135 0

20 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to Southwest N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW 225 0

21 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to Northwest N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW 315 0

22 Well done! You have labeled your “Ordinal Directions”

23 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to North- northeast N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW NNE

24 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to East- northeast N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW NNE ENE

25 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to East- southeast N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW NNE ENE ESE

26 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to South- southeast N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW NNE ENE ESE SSE

27 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to South- southwest N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW NNE ENE ESE SSE SSW

28 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to West- southwest N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW NNE ENE ESE SSE SSW WSW

29 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to West- northwest N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW NNE ENE ESE SSE SSW WSW WNW

30 Use your protractor to measure clockwise to North- northwest N 0 0 E 90 0 S W NE 45 0 SE SW NW NNE ENE ESE SSE SSW WSW WNW NNW
