Traditional GPS devices and some uses for the classroom and just for fun.

A GPS device such as a Garmin can find several uses in the classroom. For instance if your students are learning about area you can have the students take a Garmin and walk around the the perimeter of the school. The GPS device will record their movement and calculate the area they walked. It can give information such as elevation and longitude and lattitude.

 

    It can be placed in a vehicle and will give you informtation about the trip such as time, distance, avg. speed, total moving time, estimated time of arrival etc

 

 

It can give you a satellite like image of an area, much like google maps so you can explore a city from your home

Custom Maps  It can be useful in a geography class. You can download topograpical maps and water maps to show lakes and river systems

 

 

You can download campus maps to help you navigate on your first day of class.

 

World's Fair Custom MapYou can even create customs maps like this one about the worlds fair in St. Louis in 1904. So even history class can find a use for the GPS

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_p1x-fL2zc This is a video that shows how to use google maps and google to locate locations or travel routes.

 

Another very popular activity to do with a GPS device is Geocache. This is where everyday people go and place some small "treasure" in some location and then record its location for others to find. The idea is to leave something in place of the "treasure" you have taken. Garmin keeps up a database of several Geocache's for anyone to find.
