Tracking Changes in Photoperiod Around the Globe

Mystery Class Reminder: May 1, 1998

Today's Update Includes:

Reminder--Today Is the Last Day to Send In Your Guesses!

Hurry, don't be late--if you haven't sent in your Mystery Class guesses yet, you must do so today. We know that all of you have worked very hard on your guesses, and we can't wait to tell you where your Mystery Friends are hiding!

As we announced last week, all guesses MUST be sent in by the end of today, Friday, May 1, 1998, or they won't be eligible for the contest.

To help you, we are providing the instructions again below on how to place your guess. Be sure to read and follow the instructions carefully, and send in your guess by the end of today.

Good luck!!


After we receive all of your guesses, we'll follow this schedule:
  • On May 8th we'll identify all ten sites and announce contest winners.

  • On May 15th we'll introduce you to your new Mystery Friends from the ten Mystery Sites, and see some great photos too!

How To Place Your Guess (Deadline May 1, 1998)

IMPORTANT: To place your guess, carefully follow the same steps as when answering a Challenge Question, and be sure to list your guess for all 10 Secret Mystery locations in ONE message:

1.Send your Mystery Class guess by E-mail to:

2.In the Subject line write: Challenge Question # 3

3.In the Body of the message tell us YOUR GRADE LEVEL and then answer this question:

Challenge Question # 3
"Where in the world do you think our 10 Mystery Sites are located?"

Your answer MUST include all of the following information about each Mystery Site:

  1. The name of city.
  2. The name of country.
  3. Its exact latitude and longitude

DON'T FORGET: Because we judge the contest by YOUR GRADE LEVEL, you must tell us your grade. If you do not include your grade, your answer will be judged with the 12th grade level answers.

*NOTE TO TEACHERS: Students sometimes focus heavily on "winning" the Mystery class contest, so please be sure to remind them that the contest portion is only a small part of this Activity. Also, we are aware that there is a wide range of grade levels participating, and we will factor that in during the judging.

The Next Mystery Class Update Will be Posted: May 8, 1998
