Geocaching is a family friendly adventure sport that integrates technology with physical activity. As one popular description puts it, “to geocache you use multi-million dollar satellites to find Tupperware in the woods.” It is a gigantic game of hide (containers) and seek (using a GPS) and it gets all ages of people from many walks of life off the couch and out into the world. Best of all, it’s practically free. A person hides a container, publishes the coordinates to a geocaching website (we will use geocaching.com) and other people use their GPS unit to locate the hidden container using the coordinates given. Students in grades 6 – 8 will join the adventure using either their own cell phone or a school owned GPS device. Students will learn the rules of the game, geocaching etiquette, how to create a fantastic hide, solve a geocaching puzzle and how to appropriately log their find on geocaching.com. Geocaching club will take place in both the classroom and outdoors. Outdoor instruction will take place on school grounds as well as at Tuxhorn Park (parental permission required).
