We are studying the hemispheres and found this wonderful Geography Classroom Game ~
Letterboxing is an intriguing mix of treasure hunting, art, navigation, and exploring interesting, scenic, and sometimes remote places. To help the children create their Letterbox Clues using very detailed instructions to find the “letterbox”, I created Treasure Hunt clue words
We needed a Letterbox Log Book for each child and one for the treasure box, and I created these using a “hot dog” mini book template.
