So, in the second sentence I mentioned practicing for the Mystery Skype. The way we did this was that Mr. Macmillan had thought of a city and we had to ask only yes or no questions to figure out what city he had thought of. We learned that that first question we should ask should be abouthemispheres. (E.g. “Are you in the northern Hemisphere?”) We sat at computers with a world atlas, a tab on Google Maps, and a tab on this back-channel chat called Today’s Meet. Today’s Meet was used because the “Researchers” (people who researched) couldn’t talk as they tried to figure out which country it was. Some people (Questioners) asked Mr. Macmillan questions that the Researchers typed on Today’s Meet. It was lots of fun but it was equally as nerve-racking. Hopefully, the practice will help us on Friday!
