Create a “Missing” Poster for Artifacts
Inspired by Carmen Sandiego Episode 7, kids create “missing” posters for the Magna Carta and other items that VILE has stolen.
Help Find “Stolen” Items!
Carmen Sandiego chases down items that VILE agents steal. In Episode 7, this includes the Magna Carta! Kids learn more about important historical and cultural artifacts by creating “missing” posters for the ones VILE has stolen throughout the series.
Kids create a poster describing the Magna Carta or another one of VILE’s stolen objects.
Estimated Time: 30–45 minutes
Materials Needed: Art supplies
1. Instruct your kids that they will be making missing item posters for the Magna Carta or another one of VILE’s stolen objects, such as a Vermeer painting, a gold doubloon, or the Eye of Vishnu diamond. Each poster should include a sketch of the missing object, a detailed description of what it looks like, and an explanation of why it’s valuable.
2. If needed, allow students to do further research about the items they chose.
