On Saturday, May 21, sixty-five Southern California educators, community members, and kids gathered at Santiago Park in Santa Ana for great morning of geocaching!
Diane Main and Barbara Barreda kicked off the day with the low-down on geocaching, including ideas for math, science, and social studies connections and classroom management strategies.
With those ideas in mind, we were off! Special caches were tucked away along Santiago Creek with FTF (first-to-find) prizes awarded. While the coordinates got us close, keen eyes and cleverly written clues were a must for finding the camouflaged caches.
Many thanks to SoCal PBS, Orange County Department of Education, and Orange County CUE for a great event!
P.S. Aren’t these photos beautiful? The one and only DENnis Grice was a geocaching/photographing multi-tasker. Here are a few more of his beautiful shots.
