Tip of the Day 9/1:Teaching kids history through geocaching

There are almost endless possibilities to link geocaching with education. Here’s one of them:

For history lessons,correlate coordinates to facts and figures. For instance,students have to find out what year the Civil War ended in order to learn key numbers in coordinates.

There are already lots of puzzlers who have created geocaches that require research,whether it’s astronomical,historical,or local. Find a creative puzzle cache in your area and set your students loose at the library to research the answer.

Or contact that cacher and ask her to create a special cache for your class having to do with the subject you’re studying. Most puzzlers are just looking for their next opportunity and would love to give back to their community and teach kids about geocaching and about history.
