Fabulously Fun Friday: Never Eat Sour Watermelon

Isn't that how you learned it?  North, East, South, West.....  I teach this every fall when we study Columbus, but I've found a NEW way!  

This week's Fun Friday activity is a Geocaching Adventure-  We will try to find 10 caches  and if we find at least 5, a LARGE TASTY REWARD AWAITS!

Geocaching is defined as outdoor sporting activity in which the participants use a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver or mobile device[2] and other navigational techniques to hide and seek containers, called "geocaches" or "caches", anywhere in the world.

We have registered with and our user name is StaggFamily.  I am including the list of possible caches we will be looking for tomorrow-

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  I am not one to spend time researching something new- I am more of the 'sink or swim' type.  We tried a few today with no luck, however, we were ill prepared.  Tomorrow, we will be armed with adventure packs, picnic lunches, frozen water bottles, gloves & boots (to use when needed), and I am thinking of taking something unique as a prop for pics at each cache site.... not sure about that yet.  Anything else?  If we can conquer caching, we can then dive into creating our own caches with cool clues.... I think I am more excited about that than anything... but babysteps.... we did go to Dollar Tree and make these cute trinkets to leave in the cache boxes we find (*IF* we find any!)
