This activity highlights the variety (types and sizes) of geocache containers as well as the plethora of devices used to provide the coordinates of the geocache’s hidden location. This activity would be used subsequent to the basic Global Positioning System (GPS)/geocaching instruction available through the South Carolina Geographic Alliance (SCGA) and prior to using GPS units on field trips or geocaching beyond the school campus.
