Cathedral School third grade students participated in their first ever Mystery Skype with a third grade class from Ohio. Neither group of students knew where the other school was from. They took turns asking yes or no questions to figure out where the other school was located. The students used their critical thinking skills, geography knowledge and team work in order to determine the location of the other school. After the location was found, the students asked questions back and forth about what it is like in Ohio and learn more about the other school and state.
