Cole was the blogger again for our second Mystery Skype with Mrs. Tyndall's class in Crandall, TX!
It is 11:40 am, and our class is getting ready for our second Mystery Skype! I am so exited to see what the other team looks like or sounds like! It's starting! The screen is really glitchy right now. The other team has an accent, so I think that means that they might live in Texas. We asked the first question. I think our research team knows the state that they live in. We guessed their state! It's Texas! The other team still has not guessed our state, but I think they might be close. They don't have a map of Texas! They just guessed our state! They go to school at WA Martin School in Crandall, Texas.
During our Mystery Skypes, a student will blog about what's going on. Here's Cole's account of our first Mystery Skype with Belle Terre Elementary School in Palm Coast, FL!
We are getting ready for the Mystery Skype. The camera is set up, and everyone looks like their almost done. The research team is thinking of the first question their going to ask to the other team. The research team is saying that we only have a map of the U.S, so their saying that if the other team does not live in the U.S, then we can't track them down, but their wrong, because we could just use google maps to track them down, but that's a lot harder. We're about to start. The call has been made. The other team said the first question. We just figured out that the other team lives in the U.S, so the makes it a lot easier. Our research team is doing a GREAT job. Our research team eliminated A LOT of the U.S. Everyone else on our team is doing a GREAT job, too. The questioners are doing a great job questioning, the trackers doing a great job tracking, the camera man and the video taper are doing a great job, also. At this point, both of our teams guessed each others states. The other team does not have a map of New Jersey, so they can't go on, but luckily, we can. The other team will have to guess our town and school another day, so now we just have to keep on guessing the other teams town and school until we get it. The Mystery Skype is over now, but at least it was fun!
