Geocaching in Language Arts Excursion

8th grade ELA teachers recently used Geocaching in their Language Arts Excursion.  Kids were given a reading passage with questions.  Each possible answer was given a coordinate, and if the students got the answer correct, they would find the next clue at the location using Deerpark's GPS units.  If they answered incorrectly, they would find an explanation of why it was the wrong answer, and have another chance to answer correctly.  This was done as a race so students were encouraged to answer questions correctly the first time.
