Geocaching is a world wide high tech treasure hunt by using your smart phone or a hand held GPS device. Most likely, your community has dozens if not more of these geocaches hidden around town. They are at historic site, cultural experiences, earth science locations to learn a lesson, natural areas, and just cool spots.
Geocaches can be as small as pencil and as large as a 5 gallon bucket. They are as easy as walking up and seeing the logo on the container to as difficult as 'searching for the needle in the haystack.'
This session will help describe the types of geocaches, define the 'lingo', show various types of containers and hiding spots and show how it is being used in several classrooms.
Finally, participants will gain exposure to the geocaching education forum where questions can be asked, topics discussed and share lesson plans!
