Selam W.asked: “Do you live in a large state?”

Adam H.asked: “When was your school built in?

Savanah A.asked:”Are you east of st.louis?”

Now the after the questions we found out that the kids we were at Camalot!(Thanks to Kyle M.)

After the skype we asked Kyle:”How did you know they were at camalot?”

And he said:”The skype name they used was familiar to me.”

Additional information from Ms. Houghton:

All photos in this post were taken by our photogapher, Yoeel V-M. I added in the captions.

Our students were pretty pumped about their first Skype, conducted with the fantastic students from Mrs. Steighner’s 2/3 HCAP class at Camelot Elementary. We’re looking forward to further MysterySkypes, and Thien T. helped me set up a shared Google calendar to record upcoming Skypes, as well as field trips and other school events.

Tyson E. created a Google document with information we gathered about Camelot students and their corner of Auburn (although they’re a Federal Way school, their mailing address is in Auburn).
