Globe Trotters

This energetic program will have students using maps to locate items hidden around Hillside and surrounding area.  They will use the cardinal directions and parts of a map, such as legend and symbols, to discover their location, while finding the missing items.   During this program students will work in small teams travelling through the natural environment in order to complete their mission.
