Geocaching: A Photographic Story of the Search for Hidden Treasure takes students on a journey into the forests and fields that surround suburbia. Every slide is animated with a photo where a geocacher hid a geocache: a hillside, a tree, a bridge, a fence, an electrical box, a drainage pipe, a lamppost, a guardrail, or a rock pile. Almost 4,000 words tells a story from the perspective of the geocache container, excited to be a part of a game and eager to be found. Students learn about the Travel Bug and the GeoCoin, the log and the GPS-Receiver, Muggles to watch out for and pretending to be a city worker, how camouflage works to hide things in plain sight and how difficult it can be, SWAG and TNLN, Micros and ammo containers, Geo-sense and Geo-courtesy, Found and DNF, TFTC and TFTH, TNLN and SWAG. Students will love to read aloud this story. Students will improve their accuracy, rate and expression as they tackle words like obvious and oblivious, carnage and camouflage, boughs and branches, experienced and exercise, pursuit and predictability.
