Project Type:

This project is based on a program that comes from an actual exchange network run through the United States and Canada, whereby classrooms are partnered and send an actual box of clues to each other. The children then examine each of the artefacts received and research information about them which leads them to "solving" the mystery, or finding the location of the partner school. With the same idea in mind this Digital Artefact Project is a completely digital or virtual project. All the artefacts are in digital form the artefact projects in HTML are exchanged and uploaded to the schools' websites for exploration. Children use the Internet to solve the mystery.

Suitable for 5th & 6th class. It is suitable for children in the senior primary level. Classes can explore the Exemplars with no preparation or learn how to compose a Digital Artefact Box with their class.
