Mystery Class Update: May 5, 2000
Today's Report Includes:
Is That Your Final Answer?
At long last, the day you've all been waiting for! The guesses are all in, and the judging is finished. In classrooms, at homeschools, and even after school, you really gave it your all to uncover the ten secret Mystery Classes! And it looks like you had a great time too:
Mission Impossible? We Think Not!
We know everyone worked very hard on this project. A few of you even sent E-mails to one of the ten secret locations asking if they were a Mystery Site. Whether you submitted one guess or ten, and whether you are in third grade or eleventh, we consider all of you winners. We were glad to have you in the Contest!
We hope you had fun searching for the secret locations, and we hope you learned a lot about collecting and interpreting data, latitude and longitude, photoperiod, GMT, and about recognizing the central role that sunlight plays in living systems.
Did You Find Us?
Your ten Mystery Friends have finally revealed their locations below. They have worked very hard all season and this contest wouldn't have been possible without them! Now they're looking forward to "meeting" you. Be sure to come back next week to learn more about them. They'll be sending you their personal greetings and photos too.
