Workshop Full DescConnect your classroom to other classrooms and content experts around the world using Mystery Connections. These activities are critical thinking challenges that classrooms take part in while connecting with another class somewhere else in the world. Your class's goal is to guess the other classroom's location (country, state, city, school name) before they guess yours. Each student is assigned a role and they use yes/no questions to determine the location. We will also share different ways for you to employ critical thinking activities and classroom connections.
