Global Positioning System (videos on her slideshare)

  • Aircraft
  • Auto
  • Marine
  • Handheld
Have a 10 minute activity to do once you get outside because the device doesn't always pick up the satellites asap!

Hide things in easter eggs/film canisters, etc...

Careful not to get muggled!

She used Geocaching to teacher the staff about Big6.  They have a little booklet, stickers are in the cache for them to put in their booklet.

PE teacher - got Dr. Seuss books and all the caches had to do with books and there was a physical activity to go with it.
