My Stash is a Geocache
My students need 3 GPS units.
Our students are in an alternative educational setting and they are looking for unique ways to meet the different standards in each subject.
The students who are going to be benefiting from this project are students who are going to an alternative educational setting.
They are using a project based curriculum that involves doing projects that cover several subject areas at once. The geocaches are going to be great tools for P.E., Health, Math and Geography.
With geocaches in hand, our students will be opened up to a whole new form of hide and seek. Taking the geocache units and finding a cache will offer feelings of personal accomplishment and intrinsic rewards. The integration of Math, Geography, Physical Education, and Health will offer a new and exciting way for students to earn credits, and learn a lifelong activity, all while increasing self confidence and motivation.
Putting into words what this project means is very difficult because there are so many benefits and rewards that can be obtained.
Being from Maine, this project is something that can be used all year, during any of our seasons. It can be used to teach math, map reading, orienteering, and many other useful skills.
