Last week we had our first Mystery Skype. A Mystery Skype is where we skype with another class somewhere in the country and try to guess where they live before they guess where we live. This week we guessed where they were first. They live in Maine and it was a nice activity to sharpen your geography skills. We asked yes or no questions like "Are you south of West Virginia?" then they answered yes or no. We had jobs like using maps to come up with the next question or keeping track of what we already know. We had a puzzle map of the USA and we took the states off the map that we knew they couldn't be. We got down to the last few states and we asked, "does your state border another country?" They replied, "Yes" so the only state it could be was Maine. That was our first class Mystery Skype.
