===============================================================================

The Artifact Box Exchange is a project to help students learn more about their city, state, and region in the context of a simulation that focuses on developing creativity and research skills.

Each participating classroom spends several weeks in the fall or spring working with all available references to create a mystery box of artifacts representative of their city, state, and region based on 25 suggestions from the Artifact Box Teacher's Guide. Each class becomes expert on the history and nature of their towns and regions. They must also engage their creativity to display the clues to their area. The receiving classroom must solve the mystery box and identify the location of the sending classroom using research and reference skills.

The prior locations have been identified (see below), so we are searching for a new photo

If you have a picture of some outstanding statue, historical marker, manmade attraction, natural structure, or another recognizable landmark that identifies a city or town, send it to me. If we use it, you will get a free registration.
