Welcome to the 2017 Kronosuarus Korner School Challenge, thank you for taking an interest in this year’s Challenge, we believe you and your students will find the Challenge a unique and valuable fun learning experience.
This year’s Challenge is a 2- part challenge. The task in each part is designed to appeal to a range of students. A wide range of outcomes are possible and anticipated. That is why the same challenge is to be presented to Junior (Gr 5-6), Intermediate(Gr 7) and Senior (Gr 8-9) teams.

You may start the Challenge whenever you wish.
Teams must submit their work to you no more than one month after starting the Challenge.
HOW TEAMS OPERATE
To maximize interaction, a team can have no fewer than 3 members and no more than 5 members.
It is expected that a team will work collaboratively on both parts of the Challenge and produce a single (team) submission for each part. It is expected that team members will decide how they will organize themselves to work on the two tasks and produce their joint submission for each task. You, or another teacher or other teachers, can facilitate this.
It is left to you and your students to decide how each team operates. Some may wish to run several meetings at lunch times, or after school like a club. Some may wish to take on specific tasks as home assignments. Team members should feel free to carry out any research they deem necessary. Students should feel free to seek feedback on their ideas from non-team members. It is important however, that a team’s submission be created by team members only, using strategies, results and formats agreed to by the team.
School submissions will be assessed by team members, by you the teacher and thirdly by judges at Kronosaurus Korner. Team members should be made aware of how their work will be other-assessed and self-assessed before they start the Challenge. This knowledge should help them shape how they work and make their efforts more productive. That is why each team should be given copies of the three supplied assessment rubrics along with the 2017 Challenge tasks.
Notice that a team will submit a mark out of 100, the teacher a mark out of 100 and the judges at ‘KK’ a mark of 200.
Remember, only submit the work of one team for each level participating in the Challenge. November 15, 2017 is the deadline for submissions.
Museum officials will e-mail your team(s) results, along with some feedback for your team members.
We encourage you to give us feedback on how the Challenge worked in your school along with suggestions for improving future Challenges.
