The idea is to connected with other school to practice our English and learn about places around the world. We have used skype for many different things. Our first skype meeting was with a school in Buenos Aires. We skyped with them to learn more about their weather. It was all a part of our global project Same Day in March.
Our second skype was early May with a school in Delaware, United States of America. We did a mystery skype with them! A mystery skype is when we don’t know where they are and we need to make yes or no questions to figure out where they are. Everyone had an important job to do!
Our third skype date was just last week! We skyped with a Maple Bear Elementary school in São Paulo. Their class was year 4 too! We learnt so many cool things from them and about them. We learnt that we have more in common then we expected.
We have been skyping to learn about places around the world! We have learnt that one day in 2007 Buenos Aires had SNOW!!! They have much colder weather than us. We learnt that Delaware has different weather than us, they have hurricanes! The class in Delaware had already mystery skyped with over 70 classes and they have a blog too. We had to learn LOTS of geography terms to be able to ask our questions. Some of the words we learnt were: Northern hemisphere, Southern hemisphere, East, West, North, South ect.
We love it as we get to learn things we didn’t know before, practice our English with lots of new students and most of all it is awesome!!
