    For the test, the students will need to label a compass rose.  They will need to know how to spell North, South, East, West, Northeast, Northwest, Southeast, and Southwest.  They will also need to identify the continents and oceans.  There will be a word bank for this part of the test.  They will NOT need to know how to spell them.
