Mystery Skype is a great way to connect with classrooms all over the world. Two classes, in two different states or countries, partner up and try to guess where the other class is located by asking 20 yes or no questions. This team building exercise gives students the opportunity to build their problem solving skills, practice geography and map skills, and leave their classrooms to learn about others around the world.
