Geocaching on the Toronto Islands
By Gary Marchanton, Linden Teacher
Our Grade 4 and 5 class recently went on a geocaching field trip to the Toronto Islands. Geocaching is an outdoor recreational activity, played all over the world. It has been going on for about 160 years. Essentially, a small container (geocache) is hidden in a rural or urban area. By following coordinates, geocachers hone in on the general location and with the help of some cryptic clues, start searching. When we found each geocache, we logged our presence in the logbook and online, and then exchanged a small trinket.
We had a great deal of fun, covering over 5 kilometres and locating seven geocaches, including one in a hedge maze!
