What are Cardinal Directions? In this video built as an introduction to kids we will learn all about the 4 Cardinal Directions which are: North, South, East, West. Each time you go somewhere, you travel or move in a direction, which is the course or path you move in. You might walk down the street and then turn right or left, later turn around and return home. You are moving in different directions throughout the day. In the same way, cars, airplanes, buses, trains, and other vehicles move in different directions too. However, instead of turning to the right or left, or traveling up or down the
street, there are special words used to name the directions a vehicle or person can travel.
There are four main directions or points called cardinal directions (sometimes cardinal points). The four points include north (N), east (E), south (S), and west (W). The direction words are found on maps, compasses, street signs, and in many other places. The cardinal directions help people travel from place to place. In this video you’ll learn it all and even have a chance to practice what you learn at the end.
