Promote global-mindedness and geography with #mysteryskype

IMG_20150129_092224-sThere are already plenty of posts about #mysteryskype out there, but here’s another based on what I recently did with our Grade 3 class:

Teachers often cite the diverse student body as an advantage of the international school environment. One way to extend our students’ global mindsets even further is to do a “Mystery Skype,” a game in which classes from two different countries each question the other to figure out where their partner is. It’s a great way to practice critical thinking, interpersonal communication, and geography, and it usually ends with both classes hollering and jumping up and down when they figure it out!
