ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION

This week, we’ve selected ONE class from all of the classes who have uploaded artifacts to the Kids’ Guide to Canada interactive map to be our third Great Canadian Mystery Challenge location.

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

Using the 5 clues provided on our website and on social media, your students’ challenge is to discover the mystery class location without extra teacher assistance!

When your students have come up with their FINAL ANSWER, please email it to akgtcanada@gmail.com .  Only email submissions will be accepted. Please note that if you submit multiple guesses, only the first answer will be accepted.

All classes identifying the location correctly will be listed on our website below, and the FIRST class in each division (Pr–Jr–Int) to submit the correct answer will be given bragging rights for being the TOP AKGTC SLEUTHS for SEPTEMBER and a brand new e-badge stating just that!

Tell your students to get their detective skills in gear!
