Mystery Skype

December 19, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

This month at Woodmen-Roberts we also participated in a Mystery Skype call with Matt McGuire from New Brunswick, Canada. His 2nd grade class called and tried to guess where we were in the world. They had a copied world map in front of them and asked us Yes/No Questions to determine where we were located (just the state). We then proceeded to ask them Yes/No Questions from our Fourth Graders to determine where they were from. We divided the students in groups and each had a different task. Some were Google Mappers, Atlas, Fact Recorders, Photographers (to document our lesson), Greeters/Speakers, and Runners to keep everyone informed of the developments. It was a hectic 45 minutes, but the children were excited and loved learning geography. If you haven’t had a chance to set up a Mystery Skype, I have other classes interested and there are lots of great ideas for this on the web.

    I wonder if I can set this up with another evening religious education program?
