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 5th Great Canadian Mystery Class. Please note that mystery class choices are restricted to the classes which have uploaded artifacts to the Kids’ Guide to Canada map.

For each day of the week, one clue in both English and French will be sent to registered participants and posted on social media each day.  To suit the wide range of age and skill levels of elementary students, each of the 5 clues will be provided in both simple and more challenging terms.  Please select only ONE clue for each day, according to the skill level of your students.

When your students have come up with their FINAL ANSWER, please email it on their behalf to akgtcanada@gmail.com  Only email submissions will be accepted, and accommodations will be made for time zones across Canada.  (Please note that if multiple guesses are submitted, only the first answer will be accepted.)

All classes identifying the correct school and location will be listed on our website, and the FIRST class in each Pr-Jr-Int division to email the correct answer will be given bragging rights as TOP AKGTC SLEUTHS for OCTOBER, and a brand new electronic badge to prove it! The FIRST 5 correct answers in each PR-JR-INT division will also receive an electronic badge for this achievement.

Tell your students to get their detective skills ready!
