In third grade this year we are learning all about the United States. One of the ways we learn about the United States is to participate in Mystery Skypes with other classrooms.
What is a Mystery Skype?
A Mystery Skype is a problem solving game. Two classrooms set up a Skype call to each other. They do not tell each other where they are located. Students need to ask yes or no geography questions to figure out where the other class is.
It teaches geography, problem solving skills, critical thinking, and helps us to learn about other classrooms in other parts of the country.
Watch the video below to see our first Mystery Skype in action!
We will be keeping track of all of our Skypes on the Mystery Skype page on the tab along the top of the blog. Check back and look at the map to see the different places around the country--and perhaps around the world--that we have been able to Mystery Skype with this year!
We would love to hear what you think about Mystery Skype. Share in the comment section below!
