Hi All,
If interested, I have a project running with Kidlink International called Landmark 2010. It is an academic Internet game involving approx 60-70 teams from several countries. The idea is each team has a secret landmark, which they must describe with 9 clues. The clues are released 3 at a time over a 3 week period during which all teams are allowed one question per week. The question must be answerable with a Yes or No. There are two levels of play: Primary and Challenge. Primary has a few rules to foster success with the little kids, but Challenge is wide open - and the clues are sometimes nearly impossible to solve without diligent effort.  What we do: work in collaborative teams, organize outgoing and incoming data, become experts with various search engines, decipher sometimes impossible clues, make contact with a large number of schools, communicate with skype if desired, and hopefully make make new friends for continued relationships and projects.

Enough explanation - if this sounds like you, here is the project web link which I am still populating with signups.

Hi Terry,
I love this idea. I did something similar 10 years ago called "Mystery Cities" with third grade classes around the country. I would love to hear how this goes for you. Is this your first time doing the project? I'll check out the link.
Hi Donelle - I have been the manager/helper/cheerleader for this project for 9 years. Incredible participation from classes everywhere. Great effort by classroom teachers as well as media specialists. It is a major experience in research skills and excitement all rolled into one.
