3rd Mystery Skype

We have completed our third Mystery Skype this week!  When I was contacted by the teacher in Illinois I thought to myself, oh this is going to confuse them a bit being so close to home.  But our class did great.  We were organized with our maps and very focused on discovering where they lived.  We managed to guess their state in only a couple of questions!

The funny part of the Skype was when the other class asked where we were from, they didn't ask are you in Wisconsin.  They asked "ARE YOU PACKERS FANS?"  We all had a good laugh about that one. Especially if you remember the last football game between the Bears and the Packers!!
