Map Reading & Land Navigation

Today we learned land navigation using a compass, a military map, and a protractor (GPS were verboten)! We practiced map reading in the classroom, then went out on the fields in front of the school house to count our paces (how many paces an individual makes in 100 meters distance) to aid us with our land navigation, especially when we have no electronics (such as a laser distance counter) to rely on.
