Title: GPS Treasure Hunt
Url: http://serc.carleton.edu/introgeo/games/examples/gpshunt.html
Creator: Teed, Rebecca
Publisher: Carleton College (Northfield, Minn.)
Description: This game is actually an on-campus field lab that has students using directions and a GPS receiver to make their way from one stop to the next. At each stop, they identify a building stone (or tree for an environmental studies or plant biology class). If possible, have the students work in small groups, taking turns using the GPS receiver and with each group having its own direction sheet. At the end, they collect a ticket for an edible prize. On this Starting Point page, users can access information about the exercise's learning goals, context for use, teaching notes and tips, teaching materials, assessment ideas, references and topics covered.
