St. Stans Field Day

As part of their annual River Field Day, over 100 students from St. Stanislaus School in Winona came down to GSS to learn about orienteering. The group of fourth, fifth, and sixth graders spent about a half hour at both the compass navigation and the GPS navigation stations. To help them understand how to use a compass, they had to move from one spot to the next using their newly developed compass navigation skills. Then over at the GPS navigation station, students encountered a scavenger hunt where they were given clues to find outdoor-related treasures using their GPS unit.
