Activity

Measuring the Campus Green part of Integrate:Workshops:Teaching the Methods of Geoscience:Activities
In this activity, the students measure the size of one-quarter acre and use that information to measure the area of a campus green. Students are told the number of square feet in a quarter acre, and are then provided compasses, a GPS unit, measuring tapes and marking flags. We then proceed to a large campus green and without any additional formal instructions they work in groups to devise an approach for plotting corners of a square that measures one-quarter acre. Once they work through this process we return to the lab where the coordinates are plotted on a large-scale map and the area of the campus green is measured using a dot grid.
