Synopsis: Geocaching has been called 21st-century orienteering and the worlds largest treasure hunt. But is it also a learning activity that inspires creativity and real-world problem solving? Hiding, locating, and finding geochaches is incredibly popular, but its not just a weekend pastime-it can also be an educational opportunity for students of all ages. Collecting weather data, creating maps of indigenous and invasive plant species, discovering new people and places, and reviewing historical events are just a few fun ways to turn geocaching into an engaging, relevant learning experience. Geocaching can help students explore any subject, from literature units to computer programming.
In the introduction to GPS and geocaching in Part One, you will learn where to find geocaches, how they are placed, what to do when you locate one, what GPS tools you'll need to use, and more. After you are comfortable with the ins and outs of geocaching, Part Two shows you how to bring this dynamic activity into your classroom by developing lesson plans and integrating geocaching into your curriculum. Read how to incorporate Google Earth, podcasting, and other technology into your classroom. Review nine classroom-tested lesson plans. Engage in an activity for professional development. This book will inspire you and your students to embark on the adventure of geocaching.
