  • I found a magnetic rock!
  • The magnetic rock always points the correct direction when floating on water.

  • Instead of using the stars to navigate, they could use the magnetic compass!
  • The magnetic compass was significant to Ancient China because it helped many sailors correctly navigate their way through. They found a magnetic rock and turned it into a compass be cause whenever you would float it on water it would point the correct direction (North or South).
