The landmark challenge ended on March 15 and the results have been tallied.  For the first time the fourth grade at Lafayette is in first place tied with Oberthur Primary from Bull Creek, Western Australia.  Both schools found 30 out of a possible 33 landmarks.  


The Landmark Challenge is an extraordinary challenge to test your searching skills. It takes you around the world to different landmarks. For three weeks, we received clues from different schools, all over the world about a landmark they have chosen. Our mission is to figure out their landmark using the clues.  The fourth graders certainly had a fun and puzzling time figuring them out.  They were some really cool landmarks such as Falling Water (look at the display case!). But their were some puzzling ones like the Glass Beach in California. We didn’t figure out that one! Then there were scarier ones like the Winchester Mystery House and the Church of Bones with a chandelier made of human skulls. To learn more about the landmark challenge visit http://www.kidlink.org/drupal/project/landmark.


In addition to the landmark challenge the students have been building a scale model of their chosen landmark, the Millau Viaduct.  Next week we should be done with our model.  Stay tuned for more pictures.
