Who plays the Global Landmark Games?

Hello and Welcome from your project coordinator, Terry Smith. This very challenging project is for students ages 9 and up, 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 (Groups A and B) and the older players are in the Challenge Game. Younger teams are welcome to be in the Challenge Game, but the level of difficulty is much greater. See the instructions on each of the links above for rules specific to these two levels of play.

Project-based Learning in 21st Century Competencies

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