What is a Mystery Skype? A Mystery Skype is where two classes, over Skype, try to determine where each other are located. To do so, we ask each other yes or no questions about our location. After each class has correctly guessed the location of the other class, we often will spend some time getting to know each other by sharing facts about where we live and what we like to do. It's a great way to "travel" the nation and world while practicing our geography skills! Last year 4th and 5th graders at Hollis and GEJ did numerous national and international Skypes. We are looking forward to meeting more classes on Skype this year!
Here are some Hollis 5th graders practicing their geography detective skills in preparation for their upcoming Mystery Skype:
