Ki-Yi Treasure Hunt
GPS/GIS at WHS - Unit Covered background information 2 days GPS unit training 1 day of Ki-Yi Treasure Hunt 3 days of ArcView software training 3 days mapping our routes in WTN
9-12 WORLD GEOGRAPHY STANDARDS 1. use maps, globes, and other geographic tools to acquire, process, and report information from a spatial perspective by selecting appropriate maps, map projections, and other graphic representations to analyze geographic problems; constructing maps using fundamental cartographic principles including translating narratives about places and events into graphic representations; interpreting maps and other geographic tools through the analysis of case studies and using data; and using geographic tools to represent and interpret the earth’s physical and human systems.
Ki-Yi Unit Objectives: After completing this unit the student will be able to understand… how to care and operate the handheld GPS units. the many real-world applications of GPS and GIS systems. how GPS/GIS have affected their world and possible uses for them in their future. how to correctly generate and use map projections of various types.

Using the Inquiry Model of Learning
Geographic Inquiry Process
Step 1 Ask geographic questions Ask questions to learn about the world around you.
Step 2 Acquire geographic resources Identify data and information that you need to answer your questions
Step 3 Explore geographic data Turn the data into maps, tables, and graphs and look for patterns and relationships
Step 4 Analyze geographic data Go deeper into geographic exploration and draw conclusions to answer your question
Step 5 Act upon geographic knowledge Take your work to others to educate, make a decision, or solve a problem.
Integrative Geohistorical Inquiry
Phase 1 Frame geohistorical research in key themes People – culture, politics, economics, and technology Landscape – water, landforms, resources, climate, vegetation Interactions – exploration, settlement, conflict, boundaries, networks, change
Phase 2 Engage in local geohistorical studies Create a project based on the history of Casper or it’s settlement Model after examples in handout Include primary documents especially historical maps
Phase 3 Shift between local outcomes and larger contexts Local research should be linked to broader, larger story Ex. How history of Casper relates to westward expansion and U.S. government policies of 1800’s
Phase 4 Apply findings to the present and the future What was _______ like then? What is _________ like today? Why the change?
Phase 5 Transfer knowledge and skills to other places, times, and themes.
