Recommended Posts

We now work Two years with the GPS in our school.

Every class grade has his own aspect of the geocaching.

In the second year (12 year old students) i made an CSI geocache.

A real time bomb has to be disarmed by finding the wp where fingeprint,robotpicture,.. are to be solved.

I they find all the WP the bom doesn't explode otherwise boooom!!!

 

We work with the teachers theme caches. Last we made a Napolon cache with a real Napoleon figure.

A collegue wore an costume.every wp was made whith NApoleon items.

 

Geocaching is a very good item for outdoors activities.

Thanks for sharing this with everyone: it's great hearing that the kids are enjoying it ... I definitely agree that geocaching should be introduced into the school curriculum (would make Geography, for example, more fun for kids) ... especially with technology becoming more advanced, being able to use a GPS device is a major plus! :rolleyes:

I tried to open the link that was posted in the comment log but it didn't work. I assume that it is about the activity you described that you did with the kids or is it a picture of the group? Sounds like a great time learning well spent.

we just got back from a great home schooling conference and we came upon this neat looking curriculum using GPS with teaching, home school and any setting really. just want to share the web site for this: 'Educaching'

Educaching. This was developed by a teacher/geocacher.
