Finding Our Way!

My students need handheld compasses to enrich their learning of orienteering and as an introduction to the wonderful world of geocaching!

My Students

As the PE teacher, I see each class at least once a week for 45 minutes. We start with some sort of instant activity to get the students ready before moving on to the lesson and focus on new skills or concepts within the games.

My students range in age from Kindergarten through Sixth Grade at a public charter school.

At our school, we strive to teach our students real life, hands-on activities through project-based learning and really specialize in enrichment through our cross-curricular Specials including Art, Physical Education, Music/Hawaiiana, and our Learning Lab consisting of Media/Technology and Library. I enjoy teaching my students how to create games using the equipment available to us at school or at home and that so much equipment can be used in a variety of ways!

My Project

Students in my classes will learn how to use a compass to find their way to pre-set markings or waypoints around campus. These waypoints will provide a variety of clues or activities for students to complete. I would love to integrate with classroom teachers on ways to strengthen the learning in the classroom through these scavenger hunts.

I hope to provide students with the desire to get out in the community and go explore, or hike, with their families and friends.

Simply having little geocaching experiences on campus will spark an interest and make it a family affair where everyone at home will become more active!

Giving students a compass in their hand, at an early age, and then an electronic handheld gps unit, as they are getting older, is such an invaluable skill to have. You don't need to be in the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts to learn how to navigate on your own!
