The 3H Crew is very excited to be participating in the Landmark Games this year. They have paired up with Mrs. Bushey’s 5th graders to take part in this challenging global competition. We are competing in the Primary A Category. This is how it works: 30 classes from all over the world have chosen a landmark and written 9 clues about the landmark including clues that relate to longitude/latitude, its hemisphere; and a date. Last week, we sent in our landmark clues to Mr. Smith, the project moderator.

Now the fun begins…each week Mr. Smith will send out the first 3 clues for each of the 30 landmarks. The 3H Crew members have been paired up with a 5th grade partner and will start trying to decipher the clues using research tools on ipads, computers, maps, and globes. Each week, the partners will be able to ask a yes/no question which will be emailed to the participating classes to try and narrow down where in the world the landmark is. It will be fun sending and receiving emails from classes in Russia, Slovenia, Australia, the Czech Republic, and all over the USA.

At the end of the 3 weeks, we will send in our final guesses to Mr. Smith and see how we did! Each week, I will be posting the Landmark Game clues here on our blog, so that students can continue the research at home. This is a great family project!

Wish us luck!

Team Tatem Tigers
