This Mystery Skype was a special one for Mr. Vesco. The students connected with 4th grade students at Desert View Elementary in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Mr. Vesco grew up in Rock Springs and his family still lives there! The students thought it was interesting that the students from Rock Springs get to have outside recess unless its below zero! Our students also learned that the State Fish of Wyoming is the Cutthroat Trout. Thanks for connecting with us!
Our Mystery Skype today was a new experience for us. We connected with Ms. Nikki Jones in Virginia Beach, Virginia. She was presenting to other educators in Virginia about how Mystery Skypes work and just how awesome they are. Our students did a great job helping Ms. Jones show the teachers how Mystery Skypes are fun and educational. Thanks for letting us be a part of the conference!
Our 21st Mystery Skype of the school year took us to Norman, Oklahoma, home of the University of Oklahoma. Even though the class had trouble hearing us, that didn't stop us from learning and connecting with our first state in the Southwest Region!
Our 20th Mystery Skype of the year took us north of the border once more. We connected with Mrs. Spicer's Class at the Robert Moore School in Fort Francis, Ontario, Canada. This town is right on the United States and Canadian border. The students loved comparing the weather of each place. The students from Mrs. Spicer's class thought it was interesting that our students aren't allowed to go outside for recess when the temperature drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The Canadian students go outside even if the temperature is below zero! Mrs. Spicer's class was also surprised to learn that we do not play hockey here is Frontenac or even have an ice skating rink. This was one of our best Mystery Skype's yet!
