Description
Beau and Delfi, the adopted animals from GRESCY (http://www.etwinning.net/it/pub/profile.cfm?f=2&l=en&n=103985) have been taken from their countries. Where in the world are they? The kidnappers have dropped clues behind at both schools. Can you figure out the clues, find Beau and Delfi and bring them back to safety? Follow the clues and get the animals back home. Be warned however! Each clue reveals a project activity that must be completed to continue the search! The project activities will focus on Europe’s culture, beauty, tourist attractions, languages, history, traditions, animals, people and much, much more!
