The tallying is about to begin - we are coming to the end of the 3-week Kidlink Landmark 2008 game
. Kids from many different countries have been exchanging questions during the past 15 school days, narrowing questions, drill-down type questions, trying to decode the clues to find a specific landmark on the face of the Earth. Is it in Egypt? Does it have anything to do with a temple? Was it famous during the 1800's? and so forth. I'll compile the lists of guesses and then we'll convert the data to a spread sheet so we can see which landmarks were the easiest to find, and which were never found, and which teams emerge as the champions in the Primary and Challenge groups. It has been an incredible time, lots of researching, detective work, maps and globes, kid search engines, and the thrill of hearing kids say, "We know the landmark!" The current clues and teams can be seen at the project site: http://tinyurl.com/3abcnw
-- and the final tally will be announced next week.
