We're back and better in 2021!
Cambridge public school students in grades JK, K, 1, 2 and 3 are studying orienteering in PE. Orienteering is an outdoor navigation sport, in which you use a map to find checkpoints in a park or forest. To complement the in-school instruction, Navigation Games will make the same or similar activities available for families at the locations and times shown below. This will be a nice opportunity for students who have done the unit in school to teach their parents and practice their skills. For remote learners, it is an opportunity to get outside and try an activity that their in-person classmates got to do in school.
If you want to come but would like a different time and location, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with days, times and locations that work for you, to help us plan additional events. All are welcome, particularly students in grades JK-3, whether in-person or remote learners.
Due to the pandemic, one family or pod will start at a time. We will provide an instructional video. Masks and social distancing are required. Each family or pod must pre-register, and will be given their own starting time slot. Participants will pick up sanitized maps and timing cards at the scheduled time. You will need to fill out a covid screening form the day of the orienteering; we do not allow participation if you have been exposed to covid, have a positive test result, are quarantining or experiencing symptoms consistent with covid-19. We can do it again another time!
Come experience the joy of running around outside, finding things with a map! Sign up at https://www.navigationgames.org/upcoming-events
