There are generally four types of compasses, which differ in their design and purpose. You can choose between
Compasses
Zero compasses
dividers

Modern compasses, which you know from your school days, basically differ into three systems:
Edge system
Round system
Flat system
The compass already existed in antiquity. Here it was, besides the ruler, the only tool in the construction of geometric objects. This remained unchanged for many centuries. In collections of scientific instruments can be found ornately designed compasses, which were created around 1600.
From there on, illustrations of compasses are found consistently in various geometry books. The industrial production of compasses began at the beginning of the 19th century. Today, the industry essentially only produces compasses for students and draughtsmen.
The classic version of a compass is one that has a tip on one side and a holder for a lead on the other. These leads are suitable for drawing fine, clean lines, but they break off quickly. In children's hands, this can happen quite often.
To prevent broken leads, buy your youngster a compass into which a normal pencil can be inserted. This has two advantages: On the one hand, you save on buying new leads, and on the other hand, your children will enjoy drawing with the compass for longer.
Since many compasses have a symmetrical design, it makes no difference whether you use them with your right or left hand. There are compasses on the market that are specifically designed for left-handers. However, left-handed people usually get along fine with a normal compass.
Ultimately, it depends on whether your youngster or you are more comfortable with a regular or left-handed compass. As soon as your kids start using a compass at school, you should let them try out different versions. Generally speaking, it doesn't have to be a special product for left-handers.
