Waltee's Quest - http://www.walteesquest.com/ - This interactive game is a quest to find lost art pieces. Conceived by the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, this game allows users to create a username and password so they can play and save the game for access at a later date. Covering several different time periods, students are asked to search out lost treasures such as a relief print from a mummy's tomb or a suit of armor from an English castle. The game can be played at a computer, but it is perfect for an IWB.

Open this site and let your students creativity flow. I couldn't stop playing with this one. The drawing tools were quite unusual, but wonderfully fun.
