Fourth graders in Mrs. Wilson’s class at Great Neck Road Elementary School participated in the “Around New York State in 60 Minutes” collaborative teleconference with three other classes in New York State.

In the weeks prior to the conference, each class was assigned a particular region in New York State. The classes had to gather facts about their assigned region and present clues and information related to the region, such as geography, history, economics, social/political facts and current events.

During the hourlong teleconference, Mrs. Wilson’s class connected with other fourth graders around New York State. Each class presented their information in a 5 to 7 minute format, while the other classes wrote down their guess for the region they were describing. Some classes got creative and used songs, while others presented facts and clues using photos.
