    We really had a hard time with latitude and longitude. We had to look at a
    world map and take our best guess as to what the latitude and longitude
    would be. Even though that part was difficult, we enjoyed the challenge of
    finding the mystery classes and look forward to meeting them. A special
    big THANKS to Mrs. Berger's fifth grade class!!!!
