Keep it Simple
- Label each direction until you get the hang of the directions! You can do this by assigning landmarks, pylons with paper signs, etc. to help you out.
Take it Further
- Once you’re comfortable with north, south, east and west, add in other directions. You can use things like northeast, southwest, etc.
