POKEMON GO TREASURE HUNT
Goal:
To create interest in/understanding of geography through exploration and mapping

Objective:
1. Students will work in pairs to locate pokemon go figures on or within walking distance of school in search of hidden treasure ("gold coins"), following longitudinal/latitudinal clues using compasses to help locate each "gold coin." (for prek-second year students, use alphabetical mathematical problems, riddles, or simple code.)
Note: more than one coin tin be placed at each stop according to the "value" of each pokemon character. multiple coins should be placed in individual plastic bags - enough for each pair. perhaps any not claimed tin be awarded to pairs that a. finish first;
b. collect the most coins;
c. collect the most Pokemon;
d. have the highest scores, etc.)
2. Students will retrace their steps and take note (draw, videotape, vocally record, write, etc.) information individually, and as a class create a "thought map" of the area explored as a collaborative enquiry discussion of following:
a. area covered from point a (school ) to point b
b. (farthest parameter)
c. number of steps, feet, yards, fractions of mile, miles, etc. covered
3. Students will also identify visual markers:
a. street signs
b. other markers (alleys, parks, houses, etc.)
4. Students will measure area after consensus of how it is to be measured, then create map scale - how many feet, yards, miles - and map equivalent: one inch = one mile.
5. Students will individually create treasure map games on Scratch or as Board Match , etc.
