When young George Washington sized up his talents and abilities, he discovered that surveying (a way of measuring an amount of land) was a perfect profession for him. In no time, Washington became skilled at using a compass and other survey equipment.

Surveying turned out to be a good choice for Washington - his knowledge of the terrain helped him as a general to win the Revolutionary War.

Suited for 3 years and up. This scaled replica of Washington's compass is built into a sturdy hinged box, perfect for small hands and the fledgling explorer.
