Monday, March 6 – ALL Answer sheets must be received
Saturday, March 11 – All answers and scores will be posted on the website.
- While Playing the Game, students study the clues and develop yes/no questions to try and decipher only the landmark clues in their playing level.
- ONE yes/no question may be emailed to each team during each of the three weeks. Questions must be constructed to be answered with Yes or No.
- A total of 3 yes/no questions can be asked of each site, but only one emailed question per week.
- These questions are to be sent DIRECTLY TO THE TEAM’S EMAIL ADDRESS which is found in either the Primary or Challenger Players link.
- Identify your team when asking a question, and Identify your team when responding to a question.
Example from: (2A) The Warriors – This shows your number in your group (2A) and the name of the team (Warriors).
Keeping a tracking folder/log is essential to managing the volume of information that is exchanged in this project.
Please see Tips for Landmark in Your Classroom if you would like ideas on how to manage groups of students in your classroom. (Judith Painter has tips also).
