Year 6 Sanders students engaged in a Mystery Skype call in Week 6. Students were required to use their geographical knowledge, critical thinking, deductive reasoning, teamwork and problem-solving skills to discover where the class on the other end of the Zoom call was located. Students needed to pose ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ questions to the mystery students to ascertain their location.
Different roles were undertaken by students, including questioners, runners, mappers and recorders. After many questions, lots of searching and deep thinking, students discovered the students were from Mount Scopus Memorial College in Melbourne. Students then spent time sharing details about their school experiences and the cultural features of their lives. Students left this experience excited about the potential to meet more students across the world in the future.
