OBJECTIVES / LEARNING GOALS:
To celebrate uniqueness and diversity of communities across Canada
This week, we’ve selected ONE location from the artifacts uploaded to the Kids’ Guide to Canada interactive map to be our first Great Canadian Mystery Challenge location. Using ONLY the 5 clues provided each day on our website, your student’s challenge is to discover the mystery location without extra teacher assistance!
All classes identifying the location correctly will be listed on our website, and the FIRST class to submit the correct answer will be invited to help create the 5 clues for next month’s mystery challenge.
Tell your students to get their detective skills ready!
