Orienteering can be done at Primary and Secondary School with different games, in the classroom, sport facilities or playground. This activity has a clear inter-disciplinary character which allows us to work not only coeducation, but some cross-curricular aspects. In this paper, we expose several proposals which are developed in familiar environment: gym, school playground, nearby surroundings or at original places as the swimming pool or the sea; these activities that are basic for the teaching-learning process and students comprehensive education, make clear the importance of orienteering sport as a motivation element in the Physical Education classroom, and outside of it in whichever school stage. From our experience, we contribute with tools, instruments and examples that the teacher can modify and adapt to better suit the educational context, according to his/her needs and interests.
