A Student's Take on Mystery Skype
First off, and we skyped 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Bowers. Griffin, our welcome committee leader, played Rock Paper Scissors with Mrs. Bowers’ welcome committee student to find out who would do their presentation first. They played it again to see who would ask their question first. Mrs. Bowers’ student won. The first question asked was “Are you east of the Mississippi river.” As the game went on, we found out that the other class lived in the Southeast region of the U.S. Our wall mapper, Matt, crossed off everywhere but the Southeast region. At this moment, we were doing well, but then they asked if we bordered the great lakes, so they were getting very close.
We took a short break. Unfortunately, the other class guessed that we border Indiana, so they were getting even closer to guessing where we are. Luckily, the wall mapper had crossed off many states. The questioners took a short time to figure out what question to ask. But after a question that we had to contemplate in order to come up with, they were still on a roll. They guessed that we touch Ohio, so they were still very close. Luckily, our next guess was “Do you live in Virginia”, which was correct. But they also guessed we live in Michigan’s lower peninsula, so it was going to be a close game.
After that, the pace turned up a notch. It was only a matter of time before they guessed Royal Oak, Michigan. We knew they lived in, or near, their capital. We took a guess. Richmond, Virginia. We got it right! It took ten questions, twenty one minutes, and thirty nine seconds to guess Richmond.
We had a great time with Mystery Skype. The questioners were working very hard to get the best questions they could. The photographer was taking lots of pictures. Everyone was working very hard. If you’re a teacher, I recommend this game! Can’t find a teacher to pair up with? No problem! We need more people for Mystery Skype also, so if you’re a teacher, please respond! #MysterySkype
