Landmark 2020 - A Global Game of Clues, Problem-Solving & Collaboration

Your Name and Title: Dr. Terry Smith, Kidlink Project Leader & NatGeo Mentor

School or Organization Name: Kidlink Association

Co-Presenter Name(s): NA

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: USA

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience(s) Typically Grades 4-8

Short Session Description (one line):
Landmark is a 4-week cross-curricular project in geography, history, literacy, math, and science with students exercising skills in global awareness,  problem-solving, and collaboration.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

This free challenging project is for students typically in grades 4 through middle school.  Because the age ranges can go as high as 16 with some of our international players who speak English as a second language, the project has two levels of play. The younger players are in the Primary Game and the older players usually are in the Challenge Game. 

Objectives: The cross-curricular Landmark Games provide practice for developing global competencies students need to succeed. Working with topics related to geography, history, literacy, math, and science, students are also developing competencies with Collaboration, Organization, Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, Creativity, Technology Skills, and Global Awareness. One exciting outcome is that Teachers develop enduring relationships for future classroom-to-classroom interactions around the world! The next project starts in February 2020.
