Getting the GPS handhelds ready for a collaborative geocaching project with the ninth grade Geography classes. This is the first year we'll take full advantage since the majority of the campus construction project is completed. Hoping we can combine the scavenger hunt with creation of a kmz tour in Google Earth. Understanding your location in the world with the help of the GPS leads to a variety of content areas (math, science, problem solving, language arts, and geography, of course). The navigational tool can also spark creativity and inventiveness - how could a GPS be used? (i.e., designing a car that could drive itself?). Lorenzo Walker campus, Naples, FL
