High School Scavenger Hunt

Peter Andrews

Grades 9 and 10 spent an active, hot and sunny day in Lisbon Thursday, September 22 immersing themselves in the rich culture of Portugal and building teamwork skills.  Grade 9 focused on answering 70 questions relating to the museums and monuments of Belém and Grade 10 scaled the hills of the Alfama and the streets of the Baixa searching for answers to 84 questions.  Each grade was divided into groups of 5-6 students and accompanied by one teacher who ensured that no internet was consulted to answer questions.  Despite the throngs of tourists a great time was had by all and everyone appreciated getting out of the classroom for some hands-on learning!
