Why Mystery Skype? It's a great way to connect your classroom with another! Your students can break down stereotypes and see similarities/difference in classrooms across the nation!
Mystery Skype is an activity where you connect with another classroom in the United States and take turns asking yes/no questions until you figure out where the other state is located. After you discover the state, you share interesting facts about your state/city with the other classroom. End your Mystery Skype with a question and answer session so that the students can engage organically with each other.
Mystery Skypes generally last 20-30 minutes.

If Skype is blocked at your school (like it is at mine), you can use Google Hangouts :)
