Over the summer, I had the idea that I wanted my students to participate in a Mystery Hangout with a classroom from each of the 50 states. I’m glad I started this journey.
So far we have connected with 3 states. In addition to the Mystery Hangouts, I wanted my students to start sketch noting the information we collected. I’m so glad I included this aspect. It wasn’t easy for them at first. In fact, I still have a few that write lists. But overall I’m pleased with how they are experimenting with becoming more and more creative.
