Another MysteryQuest USA session today. We had some rough technology problems at the beginning, but they smoothed out and the kids settled into taking notes.
One school presented a news show! I love those. They also included visual clues at the end to make sure everyone got the notes. That’s always important with news shows because often the name of a tourist attraction gets buried in the news story.
We also had a jeopardy game that worked very well.
But my favorite clues today came from St. Thomas Aquinas School in Wisconsin. These are great examples of a very clear document camera clue. The exact notes that need to be written down are on the page. A large visual plus large text. The clue is given in a sentence with more information around it, but the important part to record is very obvious.
They also included a couple of math clues. Seems to be a new trend this year! I really like the incorporation of math with the geography clues!
All of the classes did a great job today!
