Mystery Number With Our Big Buddies

We've played a lot of Mystery Number via Skype with other classes around North America.  If case you have forgotten,  with Mystery Number Skype each class has a secret (mystery) number and the other class asks yes or no questions until they can guess the number.  It's been a while since we've skyped with other classes to play so we decided we'd play with our big buddies instead.  As you can see by the photos we used our iPads and a 100 chart to cross out numbers as we asked our questions.  It was great to play Mystery Number with our big buddies because it allowed us to all play at our just right level.  We love learning with our big buddies. Have you ever played Mystery Number with your big buddies? If you haven't you should give it a try.


  1. We play a game very similar to that in our class. We call it "Too High, Too Low." One person picks a number (you decide what range you want to use - sometimes we use numbers between 1 and 1000!)). The other person makes guesses and gets hints from the person who picked the number ~ they say either "too high" or "too low". You try and guess the number. We have been able to get the right answer with as few guesses as 6! Do you use a strategy to play your game? Maybe we could have a mystery skype date after spring break?
