We are putting on a geocaching workshop for a class at the local college next week. I was doing some surfing for lesson plans used in schools for some presentation ideas. Found out there is lot of classroom use of GPSers and geocaching. Very interesting- especially the inter curriculum plans utilizing English, Math, and Science. Come to find out several English teachers pull caches up, print and distribute the pages for their students to edit pages and logs for grammatical and spelling errors.

Also, there is quite a discussion about NOT taking JH and SR students to regular caches- but set up caches on the school property as the regular caches many times get trashed by students going back to them after class.

I try to have decent grammar on my pages and logs. But sometimes, being that I'm typing on the run usually, I do see some errors sneak in here and there.

Such is life Wink

With me it is fast fingers- typing faster than the computer can accept. However- I noticed on my google tool bar they have added new features- and one icon is a spell check that you can click on when you are writing in any forum and it will spell check it for you- also like the new news headline icon. (newspaper icon for news- ABC check for spell check)- we are off to Duluth- if Bird Dog ever runs away I know I can find him at Menards- catch you tonight- Laughing

The regular caches I take kids to are ones that are far enough away that they wouldn't be able to get to themselves (some involve 1-4 hour hikes, which really deters them from going back)...I have also done film canister micros around the grounds of rec centers when I couldn't get kids to the caches..that worked out well too and was really funny to watch kids walk backwards every time!
