Using Graphs and a Large Map

Organizing for Mystery Class:

I teach small special education classes in science, math and social studies. When we come back from winter break in January, each student keeps track of the increasing sunrise and sunset in our town.

We use the annual graph available on the Journey North website. Once the mystery class project begins, I assign a mystery location to each student. From that point on, each student is responsible to graph and chart their location.

Once the clues are sent out, we all help each other. Once we know our approximate longitudes, we mark them on the map with stickies that we can move if we need to. See the picture below:
