Goose Chase is a web based scavenger hunt app that we have incorporated into our US History I classes. Goose Chase teams compete to complete various missions including locating, archiving and chronicling achievements. We have used it in class, outside of the classroom as well as to aid in field trips. The app is a unique tool that allows us to increase engagement.
