Story Sequencing: Create a multi-cache hiding different parts of a sequential story in the caches. Students navigate to each cache, locate a part of the story, and then must assemble the story in the correct order.

Gingerbread Story: Read the tale, The Gingerbread Man. (Be sure to read a version that has the Gingerbread Man getting away from the fox.) Hide caches around campus with clues that will help lead to where the Gingerbread Man has run to. This is good activity to introduce geocaching to younger students.
