Printable Lesson Plan & Detective Game

This package for teachers includes a group activity in which students consider the question:
"Was the Acker site, excavated by archaeologists in 1998, the house of Colonel Stephen Blucke?"

It is available in .pdf format below. You will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader software to print these sheets.

Once you have printed the material - an answer sheet for each group/student, and instructions on how to run the activity - familiarize yourself with the lesson plan. Then have each student navigate to this page, and click on the button below to start. This will make the six sets of clues visible throughout the site for as long as you have your browser window open.
Good luck!

The activity was designed as part of an education program for grade 6 that relates to the Foundation for the Atlantic Canada Social Studies Curriculum.
