Shelby Porter's curator insight, November 4, 2013 10:56 AM

I have tried geocaching and it really does make you use geospatial tools. You have to know exactly where you are in reference to a map, you have to know directions in which you must travel, and you know you have to reach a certain place. While a fun activity, it is also a great geographic learning tool.

unit 1 nature and perspectives of Geography 

This video relates to unit 1 because of its description of Geocaching, a vocab word of this unit, which is a high tech treasure hunting game where people use gps to find and identify little boxes that were hidden in the surroundings.

This relates to unit 1 because it is a defining example of globalization and helping a group of people come together in their environment. This is also an example of contagious diffusion because of the beginning spread of this invention, which spread rapidly and in an outward direction.
