8th Grade Mystery Hangout

posted May 21, 2015, 7:07 AM by Web Master   [ updated Aug 21, 2015, 7:52 AM ]
8th Graders broke down the walls of the classroom and embarked on a global learning journey this month. Each of Mrs. Page’s Social Studies classes connected via Google Hangouts with another classroom from around the country or world to solve a geography mystery. Neither class involved in the Google Hangout knew where the other was located ~ they took turns asking one another yes/no questions to narrow down the location. In the end, students discovered their Mystery friends to be located in: 

Buenos Aires, Argentina
Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba, Canada 
Spanish Fork, Utah 
Beech Grove, Indiana 
Crown Point, Indiana

Check out a peek at their adventure below. Many of the pictures were taken by the students themselves. Great job, 8th Graders!
