This past spring, production for ABC’s Born to Explore was under way at P.S. 375 Mosaic Preparatory Academy in Harlem, N.Y. 5th grade scholars played Mystery Skype with a paleontologist in order to determine where his dig site was. Children used critical thinking and analysis skills as they worked to discover his location through yes or no questions. They functioned as a team as each member had a role assigned to them such as researcher, recorder, mapper, questioner, etc. When Mosaic scholars quickly discovered the correct location of the dig site, they were virtually taught a lesson by esteemed Richard Weiss.
The show aired this past Sunday. You can view using the link below.
