Where's Waldo

Chris Champion
Kristin Hokanson


Like playing hide and seek? What if you could teach your core content at the same time? Geocaching is a fun way to get outside and move around looking for "buried treasure". How does that apply to the classroom? In this session you'll learn how to address multiple learning styles by combining physical activity with almost any subject area. We'll discover tried-and-true methods for enhancing instruction with technology, including sample lesson plans and hands-on activities. We'll go outside and see how a simple writing or mathematics or science lesson can be made more fun and interesting by classifying, analyzing, and formulating ideas taken from caches hidden around campus. Participants will get hands-on experience with a Garmin GPS receiver, several sample lesson plans/ideas, and information on where to borrow GPS receivers to try out in their own school.
