Classrooms from Russia, Lebanon, United Kingdom, USA, Australia, Czech Republic, and England decide on a landmark and create 9 clues (ranging in difficulty) to submit to the other classrooms weekly. Students get one chance a week to ask a yes/no question to lead them closer to the target landmark.
Students used maps, globes, Internet searches and their own ingenuity to research 4-5 landmarks per small group. The 5th graders wrote their own emails using a class email account while the 7th graders used their Google Apps for Ed accounts to ask the yes/no questions at the end of each week.
4 classrooms - 42 landmarks
Will they find them all?
We'll know March 15th!
