How to draw a wind rose step by step

Have you heard about the wind rose? No, it’s not a flower growing in the flower bed. Long ago, in the mists of time, it was a symbol of the navigation star for the sailors. And now, as it’s customary in geography – it’s the main part of the mechanism of the compass. It shows the direction and strength of the wind in a certain region. You can predict the weather looking at it. Intermediate rumbas (short rays) between the points of the star indicate the North-East, South-East, North-West and South-West. You can see how to use this unusual “flower” to find out the weather.

The child will better remember information if you will tell him or her this story while drawing it. You can start drawing it now 🙂

You need:
1

Drawing a square

Divide it into four equal parts with the help of the ruler.

Drawing the star's line

Connect the upper and the lower corners with the help of the oblique lines in the first square.

Drawing the second ray

Similarly, we draw two oblique lines in the lower square. The corners of the connections “look” in the middle.

Drawing the rays

Remember that the joints of connections must look in the middle.

5

Drawing the cross lines

They go through the star’s center.

6

Drawing the lines of rumba (short rays)

Make the cross the lines longer. They should be a little bit shorter.

7

Connect the ray

It resembles the letter “V” and indicates the wind direction.
