Mrs. Norton's Class Collaborates With Another School

Jenny Staheli

On Thursday, January 18, Mrs. Norton's 4th Grade participated in a 'Mystery Skype' with another fourth grade class in the Salt Lake School District, in our library.  Each class picked a book they were familiar with and then made a list of 'yes' or 'no' questions they could ask the other class about the book they had chosen.  Mrs. Staheli and Mrs. Lewis (the other school's librarian) kept things on track as the classes took turns asking and answering questions over FaceTime, and by the end of library, the other class guessed that the book Mrs. Norton's class had chosen was "Charlotte's Web".  It took a couple of good hints on their part, but we finally guessed that the book they had picked was "The Chocolate Touch".  It was a great activity that all the fourth graders had fun with!
