Mystery State Project

Today, I was catching up on my ISED listserv digests and came across a link from Jayme Johnson over at the Village school. She recommended the Mystery State Skype Project. I LOVE IT! In this innovative Skype project, students sign up to meet with another class to guess which state they are from. Each class comes up with clues to share at the first meeting. From the site:
"Have your students come up with at least 10 great clues about your state ranging from easy to hard. Make sure to stress to your students that the clues need to be fact based and well researched. You want to make sure you include topography. Great beginning clues would be who the Governor is or showing a picture of the state capitol."
It's a bit late to be signing up, so get on the ball!
