Trying to locate our Mystery Guest

A challenge, but we did it!

"Mystery Skype Chats"

The Grade 8's have been doing map work in NS and having heard about Mystery Skypes on Twitter, it was decided to arrange one or two for our Grade 8's. A Mystery Skype is when the teacher locates a "Guest" from elsewhere in the world, possibly even with their class, and the students have to try and locate where that guest is from using only YES/NO questions.

Not only is it great for map work, but we found it also great for learning how to ask appropriate questions, how to lead from one question into another and how to make deductions based on answers. We hope to do more of these since it was a challenge, and still a lot of fun!
