Mystery Skype

This past week ,our class has been able to participate in Mystery Skype with two other fourth grade classes.


Students selected roles (jobs) and then played 20 Questions with another group in a mystery location using the live-streaming video tool, Skype. Students were only able to ask yes/no questions of each other. Using other digital tools such as Google Maps, Google Sheets, Google Forms, and a back channel for sharing their possible questions, they worked as a team to solve the mystery of where the other class was located. Both times, our class was able to guess the correct city.


Afterwards, students were able to have a question-and-answer session to learn more about each other. Last week, we visited Winter Park, Florida, and today we "traveled" all the way to Sao Paulo, Brazil! It was an amazing geography lesson!
