  • Challenge question # 2

    Hi, I'm Dan from Mr. Koenka's fifth grade class at the Penobscot
    Elementary School in Penobscot, Maine. Here is my answer to mystery class
    challenge question # 2:

    On March 20th on both sides of the equator there will be twelve hours of
    day and twelve hours of night. All the mystery classes will meet at the 12
    hour point on the graph because the sun is directly over the equator. This
    is the spring equinox.

    Happy Spring!!!
