Diagram: Using The Plough as a signpost

Use the various signposts of the Plough to help you move to other constellations. Look for the 2 pointer starts that will take you to the North Star, Polaris and onwards to Cassiopeia.
Going in the opposite direction takes you to the constellation of Leo and the backwards question mark, “The Sickle”. Back to the Plough and follow the handle of the Plough and “arc” to the star Arcturus in the constellation of Bootes.
Continuing past takes you to Spica which is the brightest star in Virgo. Use a planisphere to look around the main stars and find Andromeda, near Cassiopeia, maybe even find M31 with binoculars.
