Before the Hangout each class worked in small groups to choose a well-known book character and establish three clues to share with the other class. Mrs. Updike's classes' clues appear below:
On the day of the Hangout, a 5th grade small group met a 2nd grade small group, introducing themselves and sharing their group's clues. The other group then made a guess; if they were unsure, the group could ask one clarifying question before making a guess.
Once groups shared their clues and made their guesses, students in both classes returned to their tables to work on the handout "My Favorite Book Character."

Below are a few examples showing some of the 5th graders' favorite book characters:
Students' handouts were delivered to one another's classrooms so we could talk about favorite book characters. Our second Google Hangout was another success, and we're eager to continue our friendships with our friends at South Prairie Elementary!
