Description

Global Connections through Mystery Skype

The regular version of Mystery Skype is a global guessing game that develops student's cultural and geographical awareness as they ask yes/no questions to be the first to establish where the other class is in the world. They can ask any question as long as the answer will be yes or no. E.g. Do you have a Prime Minister? Are you north of the Christchurch? Are you South of the equator?
