This activity explores Indigenous ways of knowing, specifically “Trail Trees”, which were used to navigate long before GPS’s were invented. Trail Trees are created by bending young trees to point towards key landmarks. In this activity, teachers will create their own navigation system using micro:bits (small micro-controllers) to code a compass. Only a computer is needed!
Target Audience: Teachers 3-7
