Sixth graders in Matt Loyet’s social studies class participated in a treasure hunt. Using specific coordinates and satellite mode on Apple Maps, the students went outside on Tuesday and looked for gold coins that Loyet had hidden around Holman Middle School.
The class learned about latitude and longitude during a geography unit and Loyet spent about three hours outside putting together the scavenger hunt for his students.
Loyet hid 10 gold coins for each class and shared the specific coordinates list with the students. Two of the hidden coins had an extra location taped to them leading them to a special prize.
“I found one of the bonus coins that had another location on it and then we typed those coordinates into our iPad,” Talia Masin said.
