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.

Please note that the choices are restricted to classes which have uploaded artifacts to the Kids’ Guide to Canada MAP.

Using ONLY the 5 clues provided on our website, your students’ 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 in each division (Pr–Jr–Int) to submit the correct answer will be given bragging rights for the summer for being the BEST AKGTC SLEUTHS in JUNE!

Tell your students to get their detective skills ready!
