Format: Unknown Binding
Meg Garrett presents an overview of orienteering for teachers, who may be unfamiliar with the topic, to use in their classrooms. It provides lesson plans, ideas for incorporating orienteering in various subject areas, and projects to deliver a sense of 'place' to students, especially in the elementary grades. In the U.S., where orienteering is practically unheard-of, these lessons can provide different ways for students to look at their world and their physical place in it.

1 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Blind Lemon Jefferson on June 7, 2006
Format: Unknown Binding
The name of this book is not named appropriately for its content.

There is no discussion of a magnetic orienteering compass, its parts, or how to use one.

Orienteering in this book relates to aligning a map correctly with North.

Sixteenth century European mapmakers drew maps with the Orient on the top of the map. When the map was positioned in this way it was "oriented".
