Last week I went to my daughters 7th grade class and gave a talk to each hour about Geocaching. We turned it into a class project with kids bringing in things to put in our geocache. Now it has been hidden behind the school by one class and the other classes will go look for it. Once they are done, it will be rehidden and posted on the website as a geocache for all to find. It has been fun teaching this crazy sport to about 100 7th graders. Look for a new cache to be out in Grand Rapids by these kids soon. They also brought in items and voted on what they wanted as a travel bug. Laughing

We supplied the gps for the class to use. We only have a couple but the class at least could get the idea how it all works.

that is what we did when we Gpsd with the girl scouts last fall. God forbid that the shcool budget would pay for a couple of GPSs, that probably would cost less than one sports uniform - priorities you know- spend money where the pucblic will see it.
