Mystery Skype on Twitter

The past month, we have had the fun and privilege of participating in the #MysterySkype project. For each session, our class connects with another classroom from somewhere else in the world and then uses a a 20 questions-format to figure out where they are located. We finish most sessions with a conversation about similarities and differences between our schools and communities.

So far, we have connected with eleven schools in nine different states with several more sessions planned before the end of the school year. It has been a great way to increase student engagement at the end of the quarter and add an authentic reason to explore geography.
