Mrs. Eagle's class had the opportunity for another Mystery Skype! We got a last minute request for one and knew they'd be up for the challenge! Today, they had the opportunity to Mystery Skype with students in New Jersey.
Each student had their own map and we had a map on the board to help students. We started by asking "Are you east of the Mississippi River?" The answer was yes, so we could narrow down lots of choices! They asked the same. Other questions asked where: "Do you border the Atlantic Ocean?" "Do the Appalachian Mountains pass through your state?" "Are you north of Virginia?" "Do you border South Carolina?"
We ended up guessing New Jersey first! We were so excited to "win!" Our new friends had a hard time figuring out North Carolina but did get it right after we guessed New Jersey! Students had fun making new friends and having a fun Friday afternoon challenge! We even learned about the Duck Tradition at our new friend's school where duck eggs are laid and once they hatch, the Principal escorts them to the pond!
