The Artifacts is an interactive storybook, originally created for tablet devices.
Its creators are from Australia and New Zealand, who set out to tell a resonant, universal story with an eco theme. Since its 2011 release The Artifacts has found popularity with middle grade readers and adults alike.
This story is a perfect fit for Grade 4 and 5, and we are told it links perfectly to CCSS language arts (especially 5.RL.7.ii).
24 hand-drawn pages, animation and special effects to transport you into Asaf's world

Narration and hundreds of sound effects to bring the world alive
Beautiful music score, composed by New Zealand musician Chris Hurn

We have maintained an aspect ratio of 4:3 to preserve the original artwork. You will see panels on the side of a typical 16:9 ratio computer monitor. We have provided an option to run The Artifacts in a window on the desktop, without the panels.
