SWBAT answer questions during the debriefing activity concerning GPS use. SWBAT demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the satellite maps provided and the GPS technology on the GPS devices.
  • 2. Compass Direction- Students will travel, with a partner, from the north end of the building to the south end. Students will then travel from the east to the west end while using a compass. Students should travel in the shortest distance available. located in the park. Students will have to correctly identify the species of tree before moving to the next location (mark or waypoint). Multiple choice task cards with tree species on it will be provided. SWBAT identify different shapes on colors on the satellite map provided. Equipment: 10 ETREX GPS devices, 6-7 topographical maps, 10 Easter egg caches Activities: Students will use the GPS devices to navigate themselves to the Waypoints and complete the criteria listed in the lesson plan Day 4 Objectives: SWBAT demonstrate knowledge of orienteering with GPS devices, compasses, and topographical maps during a written quiz at the end of the lesson. SWBAT to perform a “trust fall” within a small and large group. Equipment: 12 Written quizzes Activities: Trust Fall- Students will participate in a “trust fall” activity within small groups. Students will be shown, through group demonstration, how to effectively trust one another during this activity. Assessment- Students will complete the 10 question quiz during the conclusion of the lesson. Day 5 Objectives: SWBAT navigate themselves, with a partner, around another park by NVCS (Holmes Foster park). Equipment: 10 ETREX GPS devices Activities: Students will provided with GPS coordinates of specific trees found in Holmes-Foster park. Students will input the coordinates and only use the GPS ETREX devices to find the waypoints. At each waypoint students will have to identify the correct species of tree before moving to the next waypoint. Day 6 Objectives: SWBAT navigate themselves, with a partner, around Mount Nittany (nearby mountain). Equipment: 6-7 topographical maps of Mount Nittany, 10 ETREX GPS devices, 6-7 compasses Activities: This is the culminating activity of the unit. Students will hike and navigate, with a partner, Mount Nittany finding waypoints and caches along the way.
